Publisher's Summary

Jack Solomon is a messenger of death. Working in the fractured remains of Yugoslavia, his task is to identify the victims of ethnic cleansing and to tell families that their loved ones are gone. Years of working in the killing fields have desensitised the former London policeman to the horrors of war, but when a truck containing 26 bodies is pulled from a lake, Solomon is unable to walk away from the case.
He sets out to find the only survivor of the massacre, a young girl on the run from the killers. From the brothels of Sarajevo to the high-stakes world of Internet prostitution, Solomon discovers that the killers are closer to home than he thinks....

A Stunning, Well Written Tale of Betrayal!

Loved this one! Listeners won't even see the betrayal and final truth coming until the last 20 minutes of this great book! Superb narration and a great plot make this novel an incredibly satisfying listen. It is set in the aftermath of the Serb/Croation war when NGO's were engaged in the horrific job of finding and identifying the thousands of corpses who had been slaughtered during ethnic cleansing.

Solomon, a former vice detective, risked life and limb to find the one remaining eyewitness to the indiscriminate slaughter of an entire extended family; running into the Russian mob among other murderous characters. His persistence and the help of pimps and a detective friend brings the central characters into dangers unimaginable.

This one is worth your time. And your credit. Great mystery and an interesting recent-historic era.
