A deadly tale of ultimate obsession. Stephen Friedman is making a good living in good times. He’s just an ordinary guy. Or so he thinks. But one day an extraordinary piece of information tells him differently. It’s a clue from the grave of a Holocaust survivor. A clue that makes him heir to an incredible fortune . . . a clue that only he and one other man can possibly understand. That man is Roth Braun, a serial killer who has been waiting for Stephen for thirty years. Roth was stopped once before. This time nothing will get in his way. Known worldwide for page-turning, adrenaline-laced thrillers, Dekker raises the stakes in this story of passion, revenge, and an all-consuming obsession for the ultimate treasure.
"This thriller moves back and forth between a Nazi concentration camp in 1944 and Los Angeles in 1973, where two men work to find survivor Rachel Spritzers journal, a document that lists the camp "elders" and the more than two hundred women they murdered. The concentration camp scenes of various types of sadism are graphic, even egregiously sadistic. Still, the narration expertise of Rob Lamont captures the pervasive horror of an entire nation fallen in lockstep behind such evil. Lamonts timing and cadence evoke a multitude of emotions."
