Marek Krajewski is a lecturer in Classical Studies in the University of Wroclaw. His Eberhard Mock quartet of novels enjoyed massive success in Germany and Poland and is now being translated into the major European languages.
'A classicist at Wroclaw University, Marek Krajewski - in his
splendid series of crime novels about inter-war Breslau - disinters
this buried metropolis like a fictional archaeologist... Breslau
1919 lives again... If the secret of these deaths lurks in the
wartime past, the ritualistic dogma that surrounds them very
faintly hints at an equally grim future' Boyd Tonkin, Independent.

'Krajewski was lecturer at the University of Wroclaw, and he prides himself on historical accuracy. His Breslau is populated by pimps, prostitutes and cynics, and it isn't hard to believe that the city will one day become one of Hitler's strongholds' Joan Smith, Sunday Times. * Sunday Times *
'Phantoms of Breslau is a cynical, moody thriller which solidifies Krajewski's position as a distinctive voice in contemporary European fiction' Val Nolan, Irish Examiner. * Irish Examiner *
'Polish author Marek Krajewski does a fine job of conjuring the chaos of Breslau (now the Polish city of Wroclaw), while Mock - a man of conflicts and contradictions - makes for a refreshing protagonist' Fachtna Kelly, Sunday Business Post in Ireland. * Sunday Business Post in Ireland *
