really liked it
bookshelves: historical-fiction, mystery-thriller

Ariana Franklin is an excellent mystery writer. The twists and turns for this tale that take place largely in Pre-Hitler Germany are exciting if sometimes predictable. I really liked the hero and heroine of this tale. Franklin makes them come alive - their fears, their love for each other, and their life in chaotic Germany as the Nazis come to power. Their adventures and experiences are extensive and intriguing. All this plus a murderer who seems to fade into the population after each kill makes for a great read. Was disappointed in part of the ending because Franklin chose a twist that has been popular with many writers.
