  • Spellbinding

    From the very first page, the main character Hannah, speaking in the first person, draws you into her world. Subtle at first, then as the story plays out, increasingly personal and dangerous. Hannah is beguiling, feminine and altruistic in a world where she must pit her formidable cunning and courage against the depravity of a male-dominated obsession with power, greed and control.

  • A Compelling Read

    Cantrell really transports us to Berlin between the two world wars as the Nazis are just beginning their rise to power. Hannah is a journalist, writing under a male pseudonym, but even with a regular job, she has trouble making ends meet. The death of her brother, a transvestite singer in a gay bar, brings her into contact with a semi-hidden world and puts her life in danger, too. And there is a poignancy to the lives of many characters because we, the readers, are aware of what is yet to come.

  • Uncomfortable but Brilliant

    Lots of tension, beautifully described, of a time and place in history that will never be forgotten. True to life, with lives torn apart by one of the most infamous regimes ever to grace this world. Empathetically told, the story tugs at the heart; humanity in all its frailty and also it’s strength is laid open for our discovery. Well done.

    Thanks for your feedback!
