Prague historical fiction suggestions

Almost done with The Lost Wife. Any other suggestions for historical fiction set in Prague? Would also appreciate Copenhagen and Berlin suggestions!

Becky How about Frances Sherwood's 'The Book of Splendor'? Set in 17th Century Prague and especially the Jewish community. Not fiction but Richard Burton's 'Prague - a cultural and literary history' is very readable. On Berlin I really like Philip Kerr's 'Berlin Noir' trilogy, but they can be grim at points. Alan

I'm reading "A Time of Gifts" by Patrick Leigh Fermor,
a memoir detailing his walking trip through Europe in 1934. His chapter on Prague was poetic.

Not fiction, but I enjoyed "Time's Magpie" by Myla Goldberg. I also read "Prague A Traveller's Literary Companion" ed. Paul Wilson - had a variety of fiction tidbits that featured Prague sites.
