A novel set during post-World War II's Nuremberg trials, in which one ordinary citizen is swept up in the Holocaust crimes of Nazi Germany. Germany, 1945. The bloodiest war in history is at an end. Now the retribution and search for justice begins. In a series of Nuremberg trials, war criminals are judged and sent to prison-or hanged-for their complicity in the most heinous atrocity of all time. But in the final trial, a leading American defense counselor has to consider questions of good and evil, when he defends a simple mechanic who kept the gas chambers in working order. Only one man, a Jewish survivor of Auschwitz, knows the truth about Wilhelm Deutch's loyalties, but he is nowhere to be found . . . Half a century later, it falls to the defense counselor's granddaughter, a young and brilliant lawyer, to discover if there has been a miscarriage of justice. As she delves deeper into the horrors of Nazi Germany, she is faced with a conundrum that threatens her very sanity.
