Publishers Weekly: "A mix of old-line Commies, red-diaper babies and more recent Russian emigres. . . . Engaging." Tamar Gillespie, a young artist married to a disabled policeman, cares nothing for the political passions that roiled her small Connecticut community fifty years ago. But when the community board agrees to host a family of Jewish refugees from the new Russia, Tamar finds that idealism can hide darker truths. Are these truths better left buried, even if they conceal a murder? For Tamar, who has plunged into an extramarital affair, the answer as to what should remain hidden is far from clear. Booklist: "Historical-mystery readers who enjoy political debates will find much to appreciate here."
