Summary
It's important to keep in mind this is the most certainly aimed at mature audiences due to the discussions of drugs, prostitution, gender norms and sexuality throughout. The adventures are also certainly not for the kiddies. I have to say this is another Chaosium release which is a prime example of why I dig Call of Cthulhu; not only does the book get your creative juices really flowing but you'll also learn quite a bit about Berlin during the Inter-War period. The adventures are rock solid, although I would probably have a bit of trouble with the second tale as far as with my gang, and are entirely unique. Unless some of the content is too adult for your tastes, this is an essential addition to the collections of Keepers of every stripe.
