Berlin, 1922: A city of fading beauty plagued by unemployment and rampant inflation becomes home to a growing number of refugees. Esther Solomonova survives by working as secretary to her fellow Russian émigré, "Prince" Nick, a scheming cabaret owner. Always on the prowl for a deal, Nick smells money when he hears of a woman in an asylum claiming to be the Grand Duchess Anastasia, daughter of the Russian Czar, the lone member of her family to escape assassination by the Bolsheviks. Enlisting a highly suspicious Esther, Nick plans to prepare the woman—known as Anna Anderson—to claim the Romanov fortune. But Anna is being hunted. Or so she claims. At first Esther believes Anna’s fears to be just in her imagination—until innocent people around them begin to die. Together with a German police officer, a dogged inspector named Schmidt, Esther tries to discover who wants Anna dead—and why. Yet the deeper she and Schmidt dig, the more they realize that their own lives are at risk. Deeply atmospheric, peopled with rich, complex characters, City of Shadows is an enthralling novel.

In the late 1980s a vast collection of forensic crime photography, created by the New South Wales Police between 1912 and 1960, was rescued by the Historic Houses Trust from a flooded warehouse. This book draws on Peter Doyles extensive research into these fascinating and often eerily beautiful images of everyday misadventure in Sydney between 1912 and 1948. Reproduced here to stunning effect, the reader is struck by the power of the photographs to transcend their provenance in police investigation and crime scene recording, to offer breathtaking historical revelation, and to come alive in their own right.

There are those who do not pay much attention to the shadows, after all, they are just harmless silhouettes that bodies project. But Elia grandmother doesn’t think the same. She claims that they are alive and use as shields from the light in a desperate act of affirmation. Even if we ignore them, we can’t do without them. You will wonder if they can influence people. Think about it, because they are here intentionally: they follow us, surround us, move among us without us even realizing it and they watch everything we do. A novel where reality and fantasy are so intimately joined that is almost impossible to separate them. “Without a doubt, where it shows the most quality is the imaginative plot, design to keep the attention of the young reader through mystery and intrigue. The story, which even saves an unexpected surprise at the end, is told in a flashback style, a few years later, by the main character”. (Bibliópolis)
