What the Critics Say

"[T]he crosscurrents and dangers of the build-up to war are established with expertise and not a little menace. Terrific." (Sunday Times on Black Roses)
"[Its] exploration of the Third Reich's bizarre attitude to women gives it an original take on Nazi Germany." (Mail on Sunday on Black Roses)

Was impressed

Not my usual genre but I thought it had good write ups so gave it a go. was really pleased I did because I thoroughly enjoyed this book in all aspects. Believable, good pace, interesting characters, interesting historical snippets, good story line and I was left wanting more.
It has also got me interested in the history of Germany and i'll be looking now for similar reads.

Enjoyable but a bit drawn out

It was fascinating learning about the lead up to the war. The reference to real people and the wrapping of the fiction around the facts added a great dimension to the story. Unfortunately it blurred the suspense. Could do with a bit more about the characters, the murder and a little less description.
