Much more than a mere detective story

I haven't experienced one of this author's books before. I'd thought it would probably be a detective story, however it turned out to be a much more complex and satisfying listen blending a pacy search for the truth behind a man killed by mistake while visiting the UN in New York and a story of atrocities suffered by the Jews in Lithuania during the Second World War. The latter makes for some harrowing descriptions and made me think about the justifications for revenge. Altogether a powerful book. The narrator is good.

great listen

I am very surprised at the low rating on this book - I would rank it as on of my best listens and I go through a lot of audio-books.
