Faye Kellerman has penned her most powerful and literary novel, one that translates beautifully into audio, with Paul Michael at the microphone. A darker story than Kellerman's Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus books, this title is a historical murder mystery set in Germany during the rise of the Nazi Party. The book is replete with well-defined characters, in particular Homicide Inspector Axel Berg, who is a complex and tortured protagonist. Not only must Berg solve a series of brutal murders, he must also deal with the political and personal realities confronting him as Hitler rises to power. As in THE DA VINCI CODE, Michael handles the foreign characters and voices deftly and with ease, while adding depth to Kellerman's intricate and gripping plot. D.J.S.
