This was one of the best books I read this year. It takes place in Nazi Germany before WWII and has lots of suspense plus a surprise ending I did not see coming. Excellent plot and writing style.


History made enthralling!

by bookneedle on Sep 11, 2007

The author of this suspense novel has managed to combine so many aspects of life and politics in Germany and Eastern Europe between the Great War and WWII that the reader wants to explore all the threads that come unravelled. Did a Czar's daughter escape the massacre in Russia and is the pretender authentic? Jewish pogroms in Russia and Poland, and, finally, the holocaust is heralded in Germany -- all fodder for this novel. The wonderfully vibrant arts community in Berlin between the wars is also depicted. Among all these events is woven the mystery of this novel. It is well plotted, and the characters are very sympathetic. The reader is now going to search for other works by this author!
