Euro Crime reviews The Informer

By Craig Nova | May 17, 2010

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

In his review of The Informer for Euro Crime, Norman Price writes:

I always feel a little nervous when I read a book that claims to be a “literary thriller”. But in the case of  The Informer, literary means beautifully written, and thriller does mean tense and exciting along with plenty of action. Author Craig Nova has succeeded on a number of levels; firstly you can smell the cigars, sausage and perfumes of Weimar Berlin as he brilliantly captures the taut atmosphere of fear and decay in the city. Secondly he has created in Gaelle and Armina two strong contrasting female characters that readers will care about, and will turn the pages to find out their fate. The story is also full of interesting male characters: Felix, Bruno Hauptmann, Armina’s boss the devious Ritter, her boyfriend the botanist Rainier, Mani Carlson and Karl. Thirdly you get a love story in which a man and a woman communicate with shared little gifts in stark contrast to the brutality all around them. All these lives are cleverly interwoven to produce a complex story, which has a warning for us today.

  2. A rotary DJ mixer crafted by hand in Australia by Medhi El-Aquil,
    an audiophile and DJ with impeccable taste. Inspired from an era when DJs like Larry Levan and David
    Mancuso blended on rotary mixers akin to Bozak and Urei, this Condesa mixer
    combines the delicate touches and warmth of those conmventional rotary mixers with the
    technical advancements of the digital age.
