    DescriptionIt's 1948, three years after the Russians "liberated" the nation from German occupation. The ideals of the revolution are but memories. Twenty-two year old Detective Emil Brod finally gets his chance to serve his country, investigating murder for the People's Militia. The first victim is a state songwriter, but the facts point to a political motive. Emil wants to investigate further, but his colleagues in Homicide remain silent: He is on his own in this new, dangerous world. The Bridge Of Sighs launches, the politically volatile terrain of Eastern Eurpoe in the second half of the twentieth century.

    Review quote
    "With its convincingly treacherous cast of turncoats, opportunists, party hacks, and rogue Russians, The Bridge of Sighs is a richly atmospheric tale of one man's Quixotic struggle to decipher the bleack enigma of postwar Eastern Europe. The intriguing young inspector Brod is a character to remember."
