This book is incredibly well written and a great mystery. Funny, I read a lot of mysteries and I think they are all quite good, then I read this and I realize this author is in a league all his own. I must read more by this gentleman.

A clever and gripping story by a master of mystery writing, Wolf on a String keeps you guessing until the end. The story is set in Prague in 1599, a world of danger and intrigue. Christian Stern the main character has the (mis)fortune of being charged with the task of solving the murder of a young courtesan amidst a miasma of intrigue, dark secrets and skulduggery. A constant air of impending doom hangs over the story that keeps you reading long past your bedtime. A superb literary thriller that's not to be missed.
