Praise

Praise for Requiem from a Gypsy

“Rich in compelling plot twists and sobering history lessons. It also showcases Genelin’s skills as a writer.”
The Washington Post

“[Genelin] depicts vividly the effects of old-style corruption on the burgeoning democratic society in present-day Slovakia, and can weave together a fast-moving whodunit populated with flamboyant characters who flit through the European capitals . . . Every character, major or minor in the plot, just about jumps off the page. Mr. Genelin seems incapable of writing a dull page.”
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Genelin once again makes present-day Slovakia a compelling backdrop for murder in his superb fourth novel featuring Police Commander Jana Matinova (after 2010’s The Magician’s Accomplice) . . . Genelin’s no-nonsense lead will appeal to fans of strong female detectives such as Kinsey Millhone, V.I. Warshawski, and Jane Tennison.”Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Genelin’s writing flows effortlessly as he propels Matinova from one crisis to the next.”
Post and Courier

“Jana, one of the more intriguing characters in fictional thrillerdom, makes fallibility seem like a virtue.”
Kirkus Reviews

“This is one of the better international mystery series currently available. Make sure to suggest it to readers who also enjoy the European police novels of Helene Tursten and Donna Leon.”
Booklist

“An engaging read, full of deftly drawn characters who must somehow see through a mazy reality that conceals the contrast of light and dark in shadows, behind screens, and in the rooted passions of the human heart.”
ForeWord Reviews
