LoveReading View on Garden Of Beasts

An American who normally writes contemporary police procedural or serial killer tales, sets his latest thriller in pre-war Germany during the 1936 Olympics.  It’s a mix of old-fashioned detective work (German policeman), appalling training tests (S.S.), a failing hit-man (ex-Mafia) and a frightening bit of duplicity (American).  It won the Crime Writers Association highest award, the Gold Dagger, and it’s brilliant.
