Yet one brave Jewish couple from Philadelphia refused to silently stand by. Risking...read more

    In the grip of a Siberian winter in 1902, a serial killer in Vienna embarks upon a bizarre campaign of murder.

The investigation draws them into the sphere of Vienna's secret societies-a murky underworld of German literary scholars, race theorists, and scientists inspired by the new evolutionary theories coming out of England.

    From the award-winning author of The Feral Detective and Motherless Brooklyn comes an utterly original post-collapse yarn about two siblings, the man that came between them, and a nuclear-powered super car.

That didn’t...read more
