Praise for Phantoms of Breslau "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, then the ritualistic dogma that surrounds them very faintly hints at an equally grim future." --The Independent "Krajewski . . . 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." --The Sunday Times Praise for Death in Breslau "It ought to be inappropriate to enjoy reading about the Nazis this much . . . Mock is a complex, compromised character." --The Boston Globe "Krajewski's thriller will intrigue and compel readers to its end." --New York Daily News "An exciting mystery . . . Wonderful." --The Guardian From the Hardcover edition.
