Read full description of the books:

I had such high hopes for this book. It was an impulse read that I found in my hotel room, and it started out so good. Set in Czechoslovakia during Germany's occupation in WWII, I was eager to learn a little more about the war from this perspective -- especially since the author is Czech. The vagueness of the murderer and his motives were reminiscent of Dan Brown's Silas from The DaVinci Code and made the beginning of this book a page turner, and stopped. There was a total shift in the book after Hitler commits suicide and it's like the book loses it's direction. I felt like Kohout was trying to convey the chaos that occurred when Germany's fate was unknown, but it took away from the core of the story, and what the book was name for -- the widow killer. It turned from a murder mystery to a struggle of morality and in the end, watered down the effectiveness of either narrative -- the murders and the case of morality. To top it off, it ended so abruptly and without resolution on either end. I have to wonder if something got lost in the translation to English...but still, it left me disappointed and a little bit confused.
