Reminiscent of a favorite...

I had never heard of the author but the genre and historical time period is one I really enjoy. I was very pleasantly surprised! Richard Wake tells a really good story! His storytelling reminds me a bit of the Bernie Gunther novels by Philip Kerr. The characters are likeable, the story is paced well and there's the right amount of suspense. I like to learn something new about an historical time period when I read, and I think that Mr. Wake did a really great job researching Austria during the years leading up to the Aunschluss. I did in fact learn things I didn't know previously even though I am fairly knowledgeable of the time period. As another reviewer noted, there are many grammatical and editing errors in the kindle edition but not enough to distract me from reading. When I finished the book, I immediately downloaded the second. I am looking forward to reading it!
