Publisher's Summary

Every family holds to secrets, but some are far darker, reach deeper, and touch a rawer nerve than others.
Vanesa Neuman is the daughter of Holocaust survivors, and her childhood in the cramped intimacy of south Tel Aviv is shadowed by her parents' unspoken wartime experiences. The past for her was a closed book, until her father passed away. Vanesa must now unravel the mystery of the diary she has received - and the strange symbol within - at all costs.
From Jerusalem's Yad V'Shem Holocaust research center, to the backstreets of Prague, and into the former "paradise ghetto" of Theresienstadt, Vanesa's journey of understanding will reveal a darker family past than she ever imagined - a secret kept alive for over half a century.

Mystery, suspense, intrigue!

It is really difficult to find a contemporary mystery. This book qualifies. I would also catalog it under thriller, suspense and even horror due to the nature of the subject matter.

I learned a ton from this book and even found myself doing research on certain subplots after I had finished.

Galerie was really well written, the pace was excellent and the narrator did a superb job.

Thank you Mr. Greenberg and Mr. Deakins for a first rate listen!
