Reminiscent of Annie Proulx's Accordion Crimes, this impressive literary debut is historic crime fiction at its absolute finest. An intriguing and evocative read, told with a third-person sweeping narrative that is both edgy and wise, The Brothers From Budapest by composer and award-winning writer Franceska Molnar delivers a powerful portrait of the Depression Era and the complicated landscapes of a life of crime and brotherhood. In equal measures heartbreaking, tender and sincere, this compelling narrative reveals the challenges of immigrants in the first half of the twentieth century and exposes how thin blood ties can be. While the old adage that crime never pays might not ring completely true, it is certain that all crime has its cost.
