Just as strong as the other books in this wonderful series; Slonsky is, as ever, engaging company. In common with Andrea Camilleri’s Inspector Montalbano stories, Brack’s Slonsky books are based on real life events. Of course, there’s plenty of artistic license as the books have to be readable but having that anchoring to reality does add gravitas to what is, overall, a light-hearted read.
The Czech Republic offers a fertile setting for crime fiction; still not divorced from the yoke of communism and being a staging post for smuggling and trafficking operations from the Balkans.
A really enjoyable book.
