VI's friend is in terrible danger - from both past crimes and present evil . . .
Lotty Herschel is more than just a friend to Vic Warshawski - she is a mentor. A Holocaust survivor, Lotty has built a good life for herself. So when a man with recovered memories of a childhood strikingly similar to her own starts to plague Lotty, VI - working on a difficult fraud case - tries to help in the only way she can: by examining his murky past.
Struggling to decide who she can trust, VI is caught in a mystery that stretches from Switzerland and Germany to Chicago's South Side, and across many decades. As she digs deeper, VI moves closer to a shocking truth - a truth that could destroy her oldest friend. And may have fatal consequences for others . . .
