In this third Nina Borg thriller, following The Boy in the Suitcase and Invisible Murder, Ukrainian mail-order bride Natasha Doroshenko has been convicted of attempting to murder her Danish ex-fiancé, but on her way to interrogation in Copenhagen she escapes police custody. Then the frozen, tortured body of the fiancé is discovered, and the manhunt for Natasha escalates. Danish Red Cross nurse Nina Borg has known Natasha since she first took refuge at Nina's crisis center, and she just can't see the young mother as a vicious killer. But this mystery has long and bloody roots stretching back to the Ukraine famine of 1934, when a ten-year-old girl with the voice of a nightingale sang her family into shallow graves.
