Reviews

"Larson's best and most enthralling work of novelistic history...rich with incident, populated by fascinating secondary characters, tinged with rising peril and pityingly persuasive...powerful, poignant...a transportingly true story." * NEW YORK TIMES *
"Fascinating...using letters and diaries, Larson - a master at writing true tales as riveting as fiction - creates a nuanced, eyewitness account of a father and daughter whose eyes thankfully opened as the horrors closed in." * PEOPLE *
"Reads like an elegant thriller...utterly compelling...an excellent and entertaining book that deserves to be a bestseller." -- Philip Kerr * Washington Post *
"Compelling...the kind of book that brings history alive to readers and proves why Larson's Isaac's Storm and The Devil in the White City were such hits." * USA TODAY *
"Larson has meticulously researched the Dodds' intimate witness to Hitler's ascendancy...has all the pleasures of a political thriller: innocents abroad, the gathering storm...a fresh picture of these terrible events." * New York Times Book Review *
