Breslau, the hideously battered, naked bodies of four sailors are discovered on an island in the River Oder.

At the same time, he is haunted by appalling nightmares; only nights spent drinking and carousing can keep his demons at bay. Dark, sophisticated and uncompromising, the distinctive Breslau series has already received broad critical acclaim. Phantoms of Breslau confirms Eberhard Mock as the most outrageous and original detective in crime fiction.
