This volume offers bracing new translations of two precursors to the modern detective novel by Friedrich Dürrenmatt, whose genre-bending mysteries recall the work of Alain Robbe-Grillet and anticipate the postmodern fictions of Paul Auster and other contemporary neo-noir novelists. Both mysteries follow Inspector Barlach as he moves through worlds in which the distinction between crime and justice seems to have vanished. In The Judge and His Hangman, Barlach forgoes the arrest of a murderer in order to manipulate him into killing another, more elusive criminal. And in Suspicion, Barlach pursues a former Nazi doctor by checking into his clinic with the hope of forcing him to reveal himself. The result is two thrillers that bring existential philosophy and the detective genre into dazzling convergence.

Lucy Burns wants a normal life: friends, love, and a family of her own. And she could have it all if only she could break free from the job she hates. That job? Facilitator to hell, and her boss is a real devil. At the age of eleven, to save her sister's life, Lucy writes a desperate letter "To Whom It May Concern," but when He writes back, Lucy is bound for life. There are perks, sure--she's ageless; she's beautiful; and she can eat as much chocolate as she wants and never get fat--but there are also consequences. She can never see her family again. She can never have a boyfriend. She must spend her life leading sinners to their demise. After nineteen years of doing the devil's dirty work, Lucy wants out, but it all seems hopeless until Teddy Nightingale, her easy listening music idol, gives her the answer: a little-known loophole. If she succeeds, Lucy gets love, happiness, and everything she's ever wanted. But the consequences? They're considerably worse than death. To make it through, Lucy must decide what is good and what is evil, what is right and what is wrong, and if, in the end, there's ever truly a way to know.

From the mid-fifteenth century to the early seventeenth, German Jews were persecuted and tried for the alleged ritual murders of Christian children, whose blood purportedly played a crucial part in Jewish magical rites. In this engrossing book R. Po-Chia Hsia traces the rise and decline of ritual murder trials during that period. Using sources ranging from Christian and Kabbalistic treatises to judicial records and popular pamphlets, Hsia examines the religious sources of the idea of child sacrifice and blood symbolism and reconstructs the political context of ritual murder trials against the Jews. "This volume combines clarity of thinking, elegance of style, and exemplary scholarly attention to detail with intellectual sobriety and human compassion."-Jerome Friedman, Sixteenth Century Journal "Hsia has... succeeded in turning established knowledge to illuminatingly new purposes."-G.R. Elton, New York Review of Books "This meticulously researched and unusually perceptive book is social and intellectual history at its best."-Library Journal "A fresh perspective on an old problem by a major new talent."-Steven Ozment, Harvard University R. Po-chia Hsia, professor of history at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, is also the author of Society and Religion in Munster, 1535-1618
