The Bridge of Sighs: A Novel by Olen Steinhauer

Its August, 1948, three years after the Russians liberated a tiny nation from German occupation. But the Red Army still patrols the small capitals rubble-strewn streets, and the ideals of the Revolution are but memories. With the war over, twenty-two-year-old Detec-tive Emil Brod finally gets his chance to serve his country, investigating murders for the Peoples Militia. The victim in Emils first case is a state songwriter, but the facts point to a political motive and the ambitious Emil would like to investigate further. But even in his naivet, he realizes that the police academy never prepared him for this peculiar postwar environment, in which his colleagues in the homicide department think hes a spy, where lawlessness and corruption are the rules of the city, and in which hes still expected to investigate a murder. The Bridge of Sighs launches a unique series of literary crime novels featuring a dynamic cast of characters in an ever-evolving landscape: the politically volatile terrain of Eastern Europe in the second half of the twentieth century.
