This review is from: A Small Death in Lisbon (Paperback)
This novel is compelling and exciting, a racy blend of a narrative of wartime Nazi intrigue and exploitation interweaved with a modern day crime investigation. Mostly set in Portugal it brings to life the ambiance of the country and nicely juxtaposes the shadow of Salazar-era politics on middle aged Portuguese and still undiscovered Nazi secrets. The main character, the investigating officer, is perceptive, insightful and honest with himself and others, both in his professional and private lives.
Well written and addictive. Top book.
