In this follow-up to Antoinette van Heugten's Saving Max, an American pediatrician is forced to confront the roots of her family's troubled history in Amsterdam during the dark days of World War II, while her daughter's life hangs in the balance. Nora de Jong returns home from work one day to find her mother Anneke murdered and her infant daughter Rose missing. The only clue is the body of an unknown man, clutching a Luger in his dead hand. Finding a locked metal box in her parents' attic, and traveling to the Netherlands, Nora is led by an old family diary into a city once under Nazi occupation, where her mother's wartime alliances may have long ago sealed her fate—and Rose's.
"In a gripping journey of lies, betrayal, and heartbreak—and an absorbing chase from beginning to end—best-selling author and former international trial lawyer van Heugten creates a spellbinding tale of motherly love and family secrets that will keep readers up late into the night."—Booklist
