Death in Breslau by Marek Krajewski( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Occupied Breslau, 1933: Two young women are found murdered on a train, scorpions writhing on their bodies, an indecipherable note in an apparently oriental language nearby. Police Inspector Eberhard Mock's weekly assignation with two ladies of the night to play chess is interrupted as he is called to investigate. But uncovering the truth is no straightforward matter to Breslau. The city is in the grip of the Gestapo, and has become a place where spies are everywhere, corrupt ministers torture confessions from Jewish merchants, and Freemasons guard their secrets with blackmail and violence. And as Mock and his young assistant plunge into the city's squalid underbelly, the case takes on a dark twist of the occult with the discovery that the killings may be rooted in an even more ancient history.--From front inside dust jacket

The minotaur's head by Marek Krajewski( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Breslau, 1939. When Captain Eberhard Mock is called from his New Year's Eve revelries to attend a particularly grisly crime scene, his notoriously robust stomach is turned. A young girl--and suspected spy--who arrived by train from France just days before, has been found dead in her hotel room, the flesh torn from her cheek by her assailant's teeth. Ill at ease with the increasingly open integration of S.S., Gestapo and police, Mock is partially relieved to be assigned to liaise with officers in Lvov, Poland, where a series of similar crimes--as yet unsolved--cast a long shadow over the town. In Lvov he joins the ongoing investigation conducted by Commissioner Popielksi, a fellow classicist who relies on a highly unorthodox method of deduction. Meanwhile, Popielski is worried by the behaviour of his only daughter, Rita. Her head has been turned by her charismatic drama teacher, and now, unbeknownst to her father, she has started receiving letters from an ardent secret admirer. Eberhard Mock--older, a little wiser, but still a libertine at heart and equally at home in the underworld as in the ranks of authority--once again confirms his position as the most outrageous and unpredictable detective in crime fiction. This is the final volume in this series
The end of the world in Breslau by Marek Krajewski( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"1927, Breslau, Poland: Two elaborate and sadistic murders are discovered within days of each other. The body of an unknown musician, bound and gagged, is found in the walls of a shoemaker's workshop--he's been sealed in alive. Elsewhere in the city, the mutilated body of a locksmith is found. Next to each victim is a torn-out calendar page, with the day of the death marked in blood. Nothing else seems to connect the cases. It falls to Criminal Councilor Eberhard Mock to uncover the link, the mystery taking him deep into the Breslau underground, a scene of bars and bordellos so sordid as to be nearly supernatural, and where seedy aristocrats trade in valuable information ... and where, it becomes clear, a serial killer lurks. Meanwhile, Mock's own hard-drinking nocturnal habits soon threaten his volatile marriage, and prompt some strange behavior from his young wife ... and before long, his team will be investigating not only two of the grisliest murders in the city's history, but Mock's own wife"--Publisher description

The journals of a White Sea wolf by Mariusz Wilk( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1991, Mariusz Wilk, a Polish journalist long fascinated by Russian history and culture, decided to take up residence in the Solovetski Islands, the lonely archipelago on Russia's remote northern White Sea coast. For Wilk, these islands represented the soul and quintessence of Russia: a place of exile and spiritual holiness and a microcosm of the then crumbling Soviet empire. On the one hand, the largest island had been a cradle of the Orthodox faith, site of a fifteenth-century monastery that was later used as a military fortress in the war with Sweden; on the other, it was there that the first experimental gulag had been built after the 1917 revolution. It was still home to a large community of monks." "Over the years, Wilk came to know every single one of the islands' one thousand or so inhabitants, who continued to eke out their living from the harsh surroundings, unconcerned about the momentous events that were in Moscow in the process of changing the course of Russian history. From his isolated home, he observed and attempted to come to terms with the complexities and contradictions of Russian history: the glorious past contrasted with the cruelty of Soviet Communism."--BOOK JACKET
Illegal liaisons by Grażyna Plebanek( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A passionate novel of unstoppable physical obsession amongst a group of Brussels eurocrats, Illegal Liaisons offers a fascinating insight into the first Polish generation that is truly 'free', but struggle to know where the boundaries of that freedom lie. Plebanek's characters have to negotiate between the old-fashioned devout Catholicism they grew up with, and the modern way of living they are desperate to embrace. Watch them as they try to claim their rightful place within the international crowd in the big world that turns out to be really rather small. Expect the upending of stereotypes, libidos run wild, graphic eroticisim, and, ultimately, the soul searching and hard realities
