Introducing one of the most stylish and moody historic detective series ever: The Inspector Eberhard Mock Quartet

Occupied Breslau, 1933: Two young women are found murdered on a train, scorpions writhing on their bodies, an indecipherable note in an apparently oriental language nearby ...Police Inspector Eberhard Mock's weekly assignation with two ladies of the night is interrupted as he is called to investigate.

But uncovering the truth is no straightforward matter in Breslau. The city is in the grip of the Gestapo, and has become a place where spies are everywhere, corrupt ministers torture confessions from Jewish merchants, and Freemasons guard their secrets with blackmail and violence.

And as Mock and his young assistant Herbert Anwaldt plunge into the city's squalid underbelly the case takes on a dark twist of the occult when the mysterious note seems to indicate a ritual killing with roots in the Crusades ...

  • Among the worst books ever translaled!

    The dust jacket comments on this novel were obviously written under the influence of some hallucinatory substance or another. I read twenty plus books a month and have done for years. "A Death in Breslau" is at the absolute worst of the hundreds, maybe thousands, I've read. Every character in in the book is detestable, contemptible, and utterly impossible about which to give a flying fig. It would have mattered not a whit to me if each of them had been eviscerated and the resultant bodily openings stuffed with pissed off scorpions -- as happened to the unfortunates who contributed to this "novel's" title. I finished it only because I finish all books I begin, but fortunately for me up until "Death in Breslau" none has been as painful to complete. I'm sorry if I equivocated about my feelings about this book. I realize I should have been more direct about how much I detested it. Fortunately, reviewing it was cathartic for me even if it didn't take away the pain from having read it.
