In 1932 during the final weeks of the Weimar republic, Detective Willi Kraus is dragged through the dark and seedy underworld of Germany to investigate a string of bizarre murders. As Kraus digs deeper he learns that he must choose his alliances carefully as a new power ushers in the Third Reich. But this is only the beginning for Kraus and his family, as his investigation brings him face-to-face with Nazi leaders that are today considered some of history's greatest monsters. Paul Grossman's "The Sleepwalkers" is a remarkable debut that introduces one of the most compelling, original, and colorful detectives in historical fiction.

"THE SLEEPWALKERS is a stunning debut with a strong, intelligent plot, quality writing and terrific atmospheric descriptions of Berlin on the brink of war. Rich with psychological insight, this is a disturbing, dark and very welcome addition to noir fiction." - MJ ROSE"
