Publisher's Summary

On the same day that the stock market crashes in New York in 1929, the dark underside of Berlin flushes to the surface in the form of a burlap sack spewed by floodwaters from the city sewer system. What it contains calls Jewish Detective Willi Kraus to investigate perhaps the most vicious criminal heretofore known.

Critic Reviews

“Brilliant . . . . Kraus . . . is an attractively complex lead. [For] fans of cerebral murder mysteries.” ( Publishers Weekly)
“Terrifying and worthy. Human nature has never looked so raw.” ( Kirkus Reviews)
"Powerfully captures the atmosphere of Berlin on the verge of Nazi takeover, the elegance and cultural brilliance amid the decadence, and the sense of impending doom." ( Library Journal, starred review)
