"[THE SECOND SON] proves that first-rate detectives are like good lovers and good novelists: keenly observant, intuitive and tough as nails."
"Yes, this is Alan Furst territory, but it will also resonate for readers of European antiwar fiction, from ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT to THE GOOD SOLDIER SCHWEIK." (starred review)
From the Publisher
Annotation Jonathan Rabb finishes his trilogy of Inspector Hoffner novels with THE SECOND SON, which is set in Spain. With the rise of Nazism now complete, the half-Jewish German detective is ignominiously pushed out of the Berlin police department. Hoffner decides to go to Spain to look for his journalist son Georg, who had disappeared while covering a protest Olympics opposed to Hitler's 1936 Games. The Spanish countryside, racked by civil war, is anything but a reprieve from the tumult in Germany however, and while Georg has not followed his brother Sascha into the throes of Nazi politics, Hoffner finds him lured by yet another form of extremism.
