Starred Review: A City of Broken Glass by Rebecca Cantrell

“Cantrell’s fourth historical featuring journalist Hannah Vogel (after A Game of Lies) is compulsively readable. A palpable sense of dread builds, as we know that Kristallnacht, the Nazi pogrom of November 1938, is imminent. This award-winning series succeeds at weaving a very personal story into a well-researched historical survey. In an increasingly crowded genre period, Cantrell’s series stands tall.”

Here’s the full review, available online now:

 Chasing a story in 1938 Poland as a Swiss journalist, Hannah Vogel finds a hidden stable overflowing with Jewish refugees from Germany. One of them, Miriam, recognizes Hannah and begs her to go back to Berlin to find her young daughter, Ruth. Hannah honors her request and returns to the city where she is wanted for past crimes. The danger level increases after she and her lover, Lars, back on the scene after a two-year absence, kill two German soldiers. Using her connections, Hannah works on finding Ruth and getting a new passport so that she and her son, Anton, can exit Germany yet again. In this world of deceit, Hannah knows that others hold her responsible for their losses and that revenge has no expiration date. VERDICT Cantrell’s fourth historical featuring journalist Hannah Vogel (after A Game of Lies) is compulsively readable. A palpable sense of dread builds, as we know that Kristallnacht, the Nazi pogrom of November 1938, is imminent. This award-winning series succeeds at weaving a very personal story into a well-researched historical survey. In an increasingly crowded genre period, Cantrell’s series stands tall.

  1. The phone voice recorder is affordable and yet has all the functions of the
    phone systems to VOIP telephone systems. Time to put a new office and that i will be employing a know-how named Voip and phone system data also VOIP in short.
    This is because more and more continue to become available as the VoIP equipment,
    servers and related services are hosted over the web.
