The Sleepwalkers

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 solve the murder, Willi finds his superiors diverting him at every turn. 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

Children of Wrath

Willi Kraus tackles the case of the Kinderfresser, the vicious Child-Eater of Berlin.  Turning the clock back two years from The Sleepwalkers, the story starts out in the fall of 1929, the last days of prosperity.  Berlin is deep in the throes of a giddy rush to forget its troubled past.  But the same day the stock market crashes in New York, the dark underside of the German capital flushes to the surface in the form of a burlap sack spewed by floodwaters from the city sewer system.  When Willi is called to investigate and discovers the sack is full of children’s bones with teeth marks on them—and a bible with a single phrase circled in red: children of wrath—he fears he’s run into “something darker than he’s ever known.”

And don’t forget to check out the real-life inspiration for the Weimar-era detective in Paul Grossman’s post on Bernhard Weiss, creator of the first mobile crime lab.
