Publisher's Summary

The daughter of uncompromising Ukrainian immigrants, Nadia was raised to respect guts, grit, and tradition. When the events around the seemingly accidental death of her estranged godfather don't add up, Nadia is determined to discover the truth - even if she attracts the attention of dangerous men intent on finding out what she knows through any means possible.
Her investigation leads her to her hometown and to the people least likely to welcome her back: her family.
In this thrilling prequel to the Nadia Tesla series, Nadia must try to solve the mystery surrounding her godfather's death - and his life. The answers to her questions are buried with the secrets of her youth and in post-World War II refugee camps. What Nadia learns will change her life forever.

Great surprise!

I was expecting some fluffy background story but was pleasantly surprised to find the logical prequel to the trilogy. Well done!
