McCarry has done it again; he has created an historical classic that delves into the world of the fictional yet frighteningly plausible sadistic Frantz Stutzer, a revolting portrait of an SS officer. The addition of the architect of the “final solution,” Reinhardt Heydrich with obvious scrupulous attention to historical accuracy infuses the storyline with authentic trepidation and nauseating realism.

The characters in Christopher's Ghosts are so believable that readers actually feel their happiness, fear, hope and pain and therefore deeply care about the outcome of the book. The plotting and pacing are excellent at keeping interest riveted on the current action, speculating about what comes next and even better, surprised by the finale.

McCarry takes readers into the terror and depravity of the Nazi regime as well as the heroism and bravery of those who were thrust into the maelstrom of evil only to rise to the surface, gasping for breath but triumphant. Read it and love it.
