A historical novel, set in postwar New York City.
In 1946, a girl leaves behind the rubble of Berlin for the streets of New York City, stepping from the fiery aftermath of one war into another, far colder one, where power is more important than principles, and lies are more plentiful than the truth. She holds the key to a deadly secret, a horrific experiment of the concentration camps, capable of tipping the balance of world power. Both the Americans and the Soviets want the secret government project, and it is something that neither should ever be allowed to possess.
But she hasn’t come to America for secrets or power. She hasn’t even come for a new life. She has come to America for one thing: justice. And the Nazi she’s hunting has escaped its net.
This captivating tale of revenge on the heels of WWII and on the cusp of the Cold War is one that is simply irresistible. Dual timelines, family secrets, and real stakes will grab you from the very first page.
Based on a real experiment that was is rarely discussed, this novel contains a vivid, atmospheric setting and a tense, engrossing plot that will open readers’ eyes and immerse readers in thought-provoking writing that has been compared to The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.
