I loved Brother Grimm so i was setting impossibly high expectations for this one and unfortunately while it was a good book it was not fabulous. I am probably unfairly comparing but Brother Grimm was so good this disappointed with just being excellent. It's a good read but not his best.
This was the fourth of Craig Russell's books that I'd read in a row and I'm amazed at how he consistently delivers something fresh, fast paced and imaginative. The thing I really that about his characters is that they're believable; Jan Fabel isn't given the all too familiar detectives flaw and you are interested in the whole team he works with because they're all interesting characters in their own right. One word of warning... do not listen to this book before reading 'The Eternal.' This book wasn't available on audio and The Valkyrie Song contains several spoilers that will ruin The Eternal for you unless you read it immediately after The Carnival Master. Worth also mentioning Sean Barrett's narration which is great and well matched to this series of books.

This is a well constructed novel of East German assassins making a complex living in the capitalist Hamburg of modern day. Complex plot with lots of turns and catches.
Possibly too many murders, but hell, who cares as long as its not you who is being murdered.
A very good listen for those who like detective thrillers.
