Told against the backdrop of the crumbling forty-year-old government--with the leaders who were so new in the series debut, "The Bridge of Sighs"--"Victory Square"""is Steinhauer at his best. Once again he masterfully makes crime fiction both personal and political, combining a story of revenge at any cost with a portrait of a country on the brink of collapse.
OLEN STEINHAUER was inspired to write his Eastern European crime series--including The Bridge of Sighs, The Confession, 36 Yalta Boulevard, Liberation Movements, and now Victory Square--while on a Fulbright fellowship in Romania. The Bridge of Sighs was shortlisted for the Ellis Peters Historical Dagger Award, the Edgar Award for best first novel, the Anthony Award, the Barry Award, and the Macavity Award. Liberation Movements was also a finalist for the Edgar Award. Raised in Virginia, Steinhauer currently lives in Budapest.
