Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Praise for Michael Genelin:

The resourceful and prodigiously insightful Jana seems to have no flaws. But it isn't her feats of superheroism that give the story its chilly sense ofreality; it's her casual acceptance of the almost universal corruption of everyone who lives in her world.--The New York Times Book Review

Genelin effectively brings a relatively unknown country like modern Slovakia to life for American readers.--Booklist

Genelin ratchets up the prose with smooth suspense, evocative locales, and distinctive characters who leap from the page.--Publishers Weekly

Devastated by her lover's death in an explosion--on the same day an indigent student was shot and killed in sleepy Bratislava--Jana is transferred to The Hague, headquartersof the international police force Europol. On the flight she encounters a retired magician, the dead student's uncle, who is determined to help Jana investigate his nephew's death. And his help isindeed needed as Jana faces an international criminal conspiracy emanating from Europol itself.

Michael Genelin is a graduate of UCLA and UCLA Law School. He has served as aconsultant for the US State Department and USAID in Central Europe, Africa, Asia, and Haiti. He lives with his wife in Paris.

From the Hardcover edition.
