Brütende Sommerhitze liegt über der Stadt. Seit Wochen hat es nicht mehr geregnet, und die Menschen der Handelsmetropole werden zusehends dünnhäutiger und gereizter. Während immer mehr Nürnberger an einem rätselhaften Fieber erkranken, wird ein grauenhaft zugerichteter Leichnam am Ufer der Pegnitz an Land gespült. Dem Toten fehlen nicht nur der Kopf und die Hände – er scheint fachmännisch ausgeweidet worden zu sein. Die Nürnberger sind entsetzt. Als zwei Nächte später angeblich ein Werwolf in den Wäldern rings um die Stadt gesichtet wird, greift Panik um sich. Gehen Dämonen um?

Seit fŸnf oder sechs Monaten hatte ich bemerkt, so oft ich Ÿber die kleine BrŸcke gingÑdenn zu der Zeit war der Pont neuf noch nicht erbauetÑ, da§ eine schšne KrŠmerin, deren Laden an einem Schilde mit zwei Engeln kenntlich war, sich tief und wiederholt vor mir neigte und mir so weit nachsah, als sie nur konnte. Ihr Betragen fiel mir auf, ich sah sie gleichfalls an und dankte ihr sorgfŠltig. Einst ritt ich von Fontainebleau nach Paris, und als ich wieder die kleine BrŸcke heraufkam, trat sie an ihre LadentŸre und sagte zu mir, indem ich vorbeiritt: "Mein Herr, Ihre Dienerin!" Ich erwiderte ihren Gru§, und indem ich mich von Zeit zu Zeit umsah, hatte sie sich weiter vorgelehnt, um mir so weit als mšglich nachzusehen. Ein Bedienter nebst einem Postillon folgten mir, die ich noch diesen Abend mit Briefen an einige Damen nach Fontainebleau zurŸckschicken wollte. Auf meinen Befehl stieg der Bediente ab und ging zu der jungen Frau, ihr in meinem Namen zu sagen, da§ ich ihre Neigung, mich zu sehen und zu grŸ§en, bemerkt hŠtte; ich wollte, wenn sie wŸnschte, mich nŠher kennenzulernen, sie aufsuchen, wo sie verlangte. Sie antwortete dem Bedienten, er hŠtte ihr keine bessere Neuigkeit bringen kšnnen, sie wollte kommen, wohin ich sie bestellte, nur mit der Bedingung, da§ sie eine Nacht mit mir unter einer Decke zubringen dŸrfte. Ich nahm den Vorschlag an und fragte den Bedienten, ob er nicht etwa einen Ort kenne, wo wir zusammenkommen kšnnten. Er antwortete, da§ er sie zu einer gewissen Kupplerin fŸhren wollte, rate mir aber, weil die Pest sich hier und da zeige, Matratzen, Decken und LeintŸcher aus meinem Hause hinbringen zu lassen. Ich nahm den Vorschlag an, und er versprach, mir ein gutes Bett zu bereiten.

From a New York Times–bestselling author, Charlotte and Thomas Pitt must solve the case of a young gentleman’s sordid murder—before an innocent man hangs. The naked body of an aristocratic youth turns up in the sewers beneath Bluegate Fields, one of London’s most notorious slums. But Arthur Waybourne had been drowned in his bath, not in the Thames. More shocking still was that the boy had been sexually violated and infected with syphilis before he was murdered. Despite Inspector Thomas Pitt’s efforts to fully investigate the crime, the family closes ranks, stonewalling Pitt, leaving him to wonder what they are hiding. All evidence points to Arthur’s tutor, Jerome, as the murderer. The courts agree and Jerome is sentenced to hang. Pitt and his wife, Charlotte, don’t believe the answer is so simple. But if not Jerome, then who molested and infected the boy? To learn the truth, Charlotte uses her familiarity with the upper classes to draw aside the curtain of lies, while Pitt defies his superior and the boy’s family to follow a trail that leads him into the foulest streets of London through a web of deceit involving male prostitution and pedophilia. In a race against time, Thomas and Charlotte must find the real killer to save Jerome from the hangman’s noose.

Berlin, 1932. In the final weeks of the Weimar Republic, as Hitler and his National Socialist party angle to assume control of Germany, beautiful girls are seen sleepwalking through the streets. Then, a young woman of mysterious origin, with her legs bizarrely deformed, is pulled dead from the Havel River. Willi Kraus, a high ranking detective in Berlin's police force, begins a murder investigation. A decorated World War I hero and the nation's most famous detective, Willi also is a Jew. Despite his elite status in the criminal police, he is disturbed by the direction Germany is taking. Working urgently to identify the dead woman and solve the murder, Willi finds his superiors diverting him at every turn, and is forced to waste precious time on a politically-sensitive missing person case. Colleagues seem to avoid him; a man on a streetcar stops him from reading a newspaper over his shoulder; he is uncomfortably aware of being watched. But he persists, and soon enters the dangerous Berlin underworld of debauched nightclubs, prostitutes with secrets to hide, and a hypnotist with troubling connections. As he moves through darkness closer to the truth, Willi begins to understand that much more than the solution to a murder is at stake. What he discovers will mean that his life, the lives of his friends and family, and Germany itself will never be the same The Sleepwalkers is a powerful, dramatic debut thriller of a nation's unstoppable corruption, featuring a good man trapped between his duty to serve and his grave doubts about what, and who, he serves.

A small German town edges into fascism in a novel by the bestselling author of Alone in Berlin: “So terribly genuine, it is frightening.”—Kurt Tucholsky It is the summer of 1929, and in Altholm, Germany, a storm is brewing—a local political resistance that could be valuable to Max Tredup. Max, a shabby, unprincipled reporter working for the Chronicle, Altholm’s failing newspaper, is leading a precarious and hungry existence when he takes some potentially damning photographs. Sold to the right bidder, he could make a fortune. While he contemplates his next move, the town is buzzing. Farmers are plotting their revenge against greedy officials, a mysterious traveling salesman is stirring up trouble, and the Nazi party grows stronger as the Communists fight them in the street. And all the while, Altholm’s oppressive mayor, who’s doing everything in his power to seek the easy life, is involved in a conspiracy of schemes of his own. With the town rapidly slipping into chaos, tensions mount between workers and bosses, town and country, and left and right. As alliances are broken, bribes are taken, and plots are hatched, a shocking act of violence is all it takes to push Altholm over the edge. From the brilliant mind of one of Germany’s most celebrated writers, A Small Circus “gives us front-row seats to Germany's decade-long quest for a sacrificial scapegoat that culminated in the Nazi takeover” (The Independent).
