I give great credit to the author for creating a leading character, a German officer, who is conflicted on so many levels that seem completely logical given his situation. He is charged with solving a murder of an officer and gets involved in local politics among the Partisans, whose leader, Tito, eventually comes to rule Yugoslavia, the brutal fascist Ustase collaborators, and the several factions of the German occupying army. The Russian front is not far away so there is danger everywhere you turn. When you finish reading this one go directly to "The Pale House" for a continuation of the story.
A very in depth look at the horrors and brutality of war, the incredible complexity of relationships - which may have fermented for decades, if not centuries, and the unspeakable toll of all of this on humanity. Besides being a very good "mystery", the book gets the highest mark for it's depiction of war at its worst.
Writing was great, characters were well developed, the plot had substance (although a few "coincidences" were a bit uncanny).
Really helpful list of characters at the end of the book (for reference, as some of the names were confusing to remember), a good summary of necessary historical background, and most importantly - a note that Reinhardt will be back! Look forward to reading the next book.
