Staff Review: Budapest Noir by Vilmos Kondor

Budapest Hungary in 1936 – a state with a fascist Nazi bent, an elite class living quite separately and unlike the rest of the population, and a Jewish population – some of which will go to extreme means to hide their origins in this new order. In Budapest Noir this quick suspenseful read explores the shadowy world under the radar with criminal enterprises, prostitution, and communist cells where powerful politicians and businessmen can venture almost without fear until a shocking murder brings a crime reporter to uncover dark secrets. By the way — did you know that Buda and Pest were two separate cities?
