Despite their many differences, Detective Rachel Getty trusts her boss, Esa Khattak, implicitly. But she's still uneasy at Khattak's tight-lipped secrecy when he asks her to look into Christopher Drayton's death. Drayton's apparently accidental fall from a cliff doesn't seem to warrant a police investigation, particularly not from Rachel and Khattak's team, which handles minority-sensitive cases. But when she learns that Drayton may have been living under an assumed name, Rachel begins to understand why Khattak is tip-toeing around this case. It soon comes to light that Drayton may have been a war criminal with ties to the Srebrenica massacre of 1995.
If that's true, any number of people might have had reason to help Drayton to his death, and a murder investigation could have far-reaching ripples throughout the community. But as Rachel and Khattak dig deeper into the life and death of Christopher Drayton, every question seems to lead only to more questions, with no easy answers. Had the specters of Srebrenica returned to haunt Drayton at the end, or had he been keeping secrets of an entirely different nature? Or, after all, did a man just fall to his death from the Bluffs?

"This thought-provoking literary mystery will shock listeners into realizing how little we know about the world we live in. At times, itÕs difficult to absorb that this story is based on real events that happened in the 1990s. Peter Ganim narrates clearly and dispassionately but with empathy. His pacing and tone are consistently suited to the descriptions of the suffering and travails of ordinary people during the ethnic cleansing and cultural destruction of the Bosnian war. Each chapter begins with a quotation from witness testimony; endnotes present numerous references to victim statements from the International Criminal Tribunal. Ganim's accents seem appropriate to the victims represented and add a grittiness that tears at listenersÕ hearts. Khan's novel is compelling and haunting, as is GanimÕs presentation. S.C.A.
