Very good combo of a detective murder mystery and a tale of pre-Holocaust Germany. It's a different look into Germany and Germans than many of those that we've already heard before. The solution was a mystery until the very end - she's a great mystery writer for this reason, although some of the writing did seem a little stiff. I didn't find it "amazing" because there were no strong female characters like Rina in her earliest Lazarus/Decker novels. Well - the women WERE strong, just not main focii of the story.
Overall, an excellent read.
