"The Sleepwalkers" is a stunning debut with a strong, intelligent plot, quality writing and terrific atmospheric descriptions of Berlin on the brink of war. Rich with psychological insight, this is a disturbing, dark and very welcome addition to noir fiction.--MJ Rose.
From the Publisher:
In the final weeks of the Weimar Republic, as Hitler and his National Socialist party angle to assume control of Germany, beautiful girls are seen sleepwalking through the streets.  Then, a young woman of mysterious origin, with her legs bizarrely deformed, is pulled dead from the Havel River.  Willi Kraus, a high ranking detective in Berlin's police force, begins a murder investigation. A decorated World War I hero and the nation's most famous detective, Willi also is a Jew. Despite his elite status in the criminal police, he is disturbed by the direction Germany is taking.  Working urgently to solve the murder, Willi finds his superiors diverting him at every turn. As he moves through darkness closer to the truth, Willi begins to understand that much more than the solution to a murder is at stake. What he discovers will mean that his life, the lives of his friends and family, and Germany itself will never be the same


"A solid thriller set amid riveting historical events in the seedy underbelly of a city--and a world--slowly going mad." 09/01/2010

"Though the puzzle of these vanished Berliners is involving, it's the period atmosphere that really distinguishes The Sleepwalkers. The fact that we readers know more than Willi does about the disastrous future looming over the horizon in late 1932 adds an urgency to this story far beyond the mechanics of the mystery plot." - Maureen Corrigan 12/15/2010
