    " A pre-WWII story to explain why we don't see it coming. "

    " Since I had just read Children of Wrath, I couldn't wait to read The Sleepwalkers. It proved to be just as good. The protagonist, Detective Willi Kraus is great. I love the depiction of Berlin in the 1930s as well as the foreshadowing and begins of the Nazi horrors. While the inclusion of so many famous emigres (Edward Mendelsohn, Robert Oppenheimer, Marlene Dietrich, Albert Einsteing), not to mention the infamous monsters of the Third Reich stretch belief, they make for a great story. Can't wait to read his third book. "

    " Very interesting and well written. Although it was a novel many instances were true to historical fact. "

    " Won this from the Giveaways! Very good plot, I really enjoyed the twists and even though this setting of World War II can get a little redundant, I think this one was done very nicely. "

    " A good read but knowing history, it was not a surprise ending. Jewish police inspector can prove that the Nazis (in 1932) were conducting numerous surgical experiments on 1000s of people, not only Jews. Suspenseful as the events ratcheted up. "

    " This is an awesome little mystery novel set in pre-Hitler Germany. Paul Grossman does an admirable job of capturing the mood of that time but it is not only a reflection of the period but a damn good little mystery. Pick this one up! "

    " A mystery set in my favorite time period — Germany around WWII. A celebrated Jewish German detective is trying to solve a grotesque murder as Hitler rises to power in Germany. It was a real page turner. "

    " This was a new Historical Fiction book that takes place in Germany right before Hitler takes over. It was a good book. A bit graphic but it was not a good time in history. "

    " This is his first published novel and it is an outstanding read. Set in Berlin 1932 it was a history lesson as well. I will definitely watch for more books by this author. "
