I really enjoyed the story. It was hard to put down to go to sleep, eat or keep appointments. The characters were likable/unlikable as the story progressed. The resolution was satisfactory. Thank you for a good story.

I really enjoyed this book, and spent time reading it when I had other things I should have been doing. I liked a Lauren and was rooting for her. I was unprepared for how duplicitous the people around her were. I enjoyed the ending -- it was a surprise to me how the mysteries were going to wrap up. I look forward to reading another book by this author.

I’ve really enjoyed every book I’ve read from this Author, and I knew this was going to be a great story after reading the blurb, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. I always enjoy a book when I can’t guess the ending. Also the plot is great, and I especially like that it touched on a bit of history. Lauren certainly wasn’t expecting to come into work and find the place surrounded by police. Even more startling is when they inform her that theirs a dead man in her office. For someone that teaches students about mineral specimen’s, she can’t think of any reason someone would bother being in her office, let alone someone killing them. 23 year-old Oswald Gomez is the man who has been murdered, and he has left something in her office that the police didn’t manage to find. Lauren knows her boss has it in for her, and she certainly doesn’t trust him. Even more so after speaking to her colleague Matt who lets her know her boss hates Jews, and would like nothing more than to have an excuse to get rid of her. If she hadn’t already put 5 years into her thesis, and was trying to get her PHD, then she would certainly leave. Now she is going to do her own investigation and try to keep the police out of it for the time being. Lauren doesn’t know who she can trust, and she certainly doesn’t trust her boss, after he was the one that just happened to find the body, when he hardly ever came to her office. Oswald worked as a bellhop at the Caryle, and he has obviously stolen something from one of the wealthy customers. Now that person wants their property back, and they aren’t afraid to have people killed. Plus they must be rich and powerful enough to have people impersonate the police and journalists. This is a great story, and would certainly recommend it.

Loved the story and the main character - I have always been a sucker for a strong female lead and this has drawn me to many of author Edita Petrick's books. Not to mention that historical fiction is my favorite genre and she has a talent for weaving some fascinating historical items through her adventures. Lauren is a great female lead here and gets herself into an untenable situation when some Nazi artifacts land in her lap and people begin to die in her midst. The use of the particular "artifact" was chilling and the story itself was very original. Definitely recommend this one as I found it to be very well-written and another gripping tale from Petrick.
