Publisher's Summary

Jan Fabel is a troubled man. His relationships with the women in his life are becoming increasingly complicated. If that weren’t bad enough, after a gap of 10 years, a female serial killer – the Angel of St Pauli – again makes the headlines when an English pop star is found in Hamburg’s red-light district, dying of savage knife wounds. Links emerge with a series of apparently unrelated events. A journalist murdered in Norway. The death of a Serbian gangster.
And a long-forgotten project by East Germany’s Stasi conceived at the height of the Cold War, involving a highly trained group of female assassins, known by the codename Valkyrie. Fabel’s hunt for the truth will bring him up against the most terrifyingly efficient professional killer.

One of the best authors working today

This was the fourth of Craig Russell's books that I'd read in a row and I'm amazed at how he consistently delivers something fresh, fast paced and imaginative. The thing I really that about his characters is that they're believable; Jan Fabel isn't given the all too familiar detectives flaw and you are interested in the whole team he works with because they're all interesting characters in their own right. One word of warning... do not listen to this book before reading 'The Eternal.' This book wasn't available on audio and The Valkyrie Song contains several spoilers that will ruin The Eternal for you unless you read it immediately after The Carnival Master. Worth also mentioning Sean Barrett's narration which is great and well matched to this series of books.

A good well worked thriller

This is a well constructed novel of East German assassins making a complex living in the capitalist Hamburg of modern day. Complex plot with lots of turns and catches.

Possibly too many murders, but hell, who cares as long as its not you who is being murdered.

A very good listen for those who like detective thrillers.
