Deputy U.S. Attorney David Keegan is drawn into a volatile and controversial case when an elderly Holocaust survivor identifies prominent lawyer Frederick Schiller as a Nazi war criminal, a situation that is further complicated by Keegan's love for Schiller's daughter. By the author of The Son of John Devlin. 15,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
For decades Gerta Wahljak has been haunted by a photograph of ten Nazi officers taken in the concentration camp where she was imprisoned during the Holocaust. Since emigrating to the United States, she has carefully traced and recorded the fates of nine of these men. But there is one whom she has been unable to track - until now. While Gerta waits in her Boston cardiologist's office, she sees another patient who she is almost sure is the last of the ten men. She will not be at peace until she knows.
After interviewing Gerta, assistant U.S. Attorney David Keegan is shocked to learn that he is closely linked to the man he's investigating. For the man accused of being a former Nazi is none other than Frederick Schiller, married to a renowned Jewish activist and the father of the woman Keegan loves.
Poised to become U.S. attorney, Keegan suddenly finds his life maliciously uprooted. Someone envious of his rise to power will stop at nothing to ruin him...leaking the volatile story to the press and hoping Keegan's reputation is blackened in the firestorm.
David Keegan too is a man haunted by the past, obsessed by his quest to uncover the facts behind his mother's death when he was a child. But as he pursues the truth about his mother, he must deal with the explosive case of Frederick Schiller. As newspaper headlines hurl accusations about Schiller and his wife, the two are forced to relive a dark history that was meant to be buried forever. Now Keegan must decide whether to risk his career to help the parents of the woman he loves.
