Praise for "The Warsaw Anagrams"
"Part murder mystery and part historical fiction, Richard Zimler's latest novel, The Warsaw "Anagrams," renews the impact of the large-scale atrocities committed by the Nazis on millions of Jews by comparing them to the specific and gruesome murder of a child. Jewish folklore, "Anagrams," deceit, and treachery all play a part in a novel that successfully makes personal a massacre whose scope is all too easy to diminish by quoting a mostly abstract number: 6 million . . .

"Anagrams" is a thrilling and solemn story that depicts evil in a realistic way." -- "Boston Globe"
