Katherine Powers reviews The Infomer in The Boston Globe.  Powers describes the Berlin of 1919 to 1933 as “louche and violent, a world of hectic gaiety, anomie, and shabby expedience…an arena for the investigations and bleak soul-searchings of good-guy detectives.”  Among the likes of Philip Kerr’s Bernie Gunther and Jonathan Rabb’s Nikolai Hoffner, she adds Armina Treffen of Craig Nova’s The Informer.   She says of The Informer:

The novel has plenty of suspense, an excellent plot, convincing characters, and a couple of knockout revelations, but it is its ambience that makes it the best contribution to fictional Weimar I’ve come across in a long time.
