If I were to described this book in two words it would be compelling and laconic. I've never read a book in which a writer says more in fewer pages with so much depth, and no filler. The writer covers four decades, multiple historical events surrounding a World War and several characters who are three dimensional and completely believable. The book is anything but predictable and manages to surprise the reader constantly with turns noone could see coming. If the author had a marketing department he might make a best-seller's list. He just might off of word-of-mouth alone anyway if enough people give the book a chance. Perhaps most interestingly of all is the writer's ability to slip in social commentary which goes almost unnoticed given that it is a work of crime fiction.
