The Pale House - Luke McCallin I read the first Gregor Reinhardt novel with considerable enjoyment. So I was delighted to receive this, the second one, from Real Readers. There is a continuity between both books so it was easy to reacquaint myself with Gregor and find him intrinsically unchanged, a little more battered physically and emotionally but in fine shape to continue his role as a military Maigret. It’s a story that pulls no punches and the senseless violence and brutality of war is never far away but I think what elevates these stories beyond mere war novels or crime thrillers is the thread of morality that extends throughout the narrative. So that by the end whatever the resolution or final denouement the reader is still left with plenty to think about. It’s a sturdy work, muscular, strong characters with that curious rebellious detachment from decency that occurs in a war and that McCallin seems to comprehend with something akin to compassion almost.  The research is immaculate and historically, I guess that at a stretch this could be slotted into that genre, it is enlightening and humbling. The plot is complex and it requires attention from its readers to understand all that has happened and why. As with the first novel there are no clever tricks, all the writers’ efforts are concentrated into furthering the narrative. I hope there’ll be more Gregor Reinhardt books; I like him, I want to know he’s okay!!!

After reading "The Man From Berlin", I was so glad to have another book.

This reveals a corner of the WW2 conflict that has been obscured from view due, partially, because of its complexity. The geopolitical environment is a puzzle with changing shapes but Mr. McCallin makes it both intricate and finally understandable.
