Mein ist der Rache

German Literature: Help me identify a story I remember from my high school German class. It was set in post-WWII Italy, and I think it included an Italian woman and a German soldier/officer/Nazi.

Sherlock Holmes pastiche recommendations?

I am interested in any recommendations on Sherlock Holmes pastiches. I finished a few Jack the Ripper-related stories (_The Last Sherlock Holmes Story_, and _The Whitechapel Horrors_) and would like your suggestions. I am not a big fan of Laurie King, though. The game is afoot!

I liked the Historian and Club Dumas...now what?

Need some book recommendations. Just finished reading Bram Stoker's Dracula...and am getting through the Historian. In the past I have enjoyed The List of Seven, Club Dumas, The Alienist, Name of the Rose and so forth. So I guess I like the mystery-within-history sort of suspense/horror/thriller. The things I didn't get into were Dan Brown, Ian Pears, and anything having to do with Templars or Mary Magdalene. Can you recommend me your favorites? -- Thanks so much.
