CAL McCRYSTAL ...evoked many dark memories of my earliest days, MARCEL LADENHEIM, the survivor whose story was the catalyst for this book. The novel takes the reader breathlessly from extraordinary revelation to nail-biting resolution: Dr Michael Turner is drawn inexorably into his past, to the nursing home where his aunt now lies so ill, so fragile, so angry. He must bring about the destruction of the SS doctors who so callously tortured her. But, can he do this without compromising his own Hippocratic Oath? Fuller description. 1965. London. Michael receives a lawyers letter. Misty photographs - a 3-year old boy with long blond hair- a teenage girl full of sensuality, full of hope- a woman in her 20s, faded dress, slim frame, hollow cheeks, haunted eyes. Michael is drawn inexorably into his past. To the stench of potato-sacks, the perfume of almonds and cinnamon, the kiss of a fairy princess, the barking of dogs, the screech of trains, a woman tearing at his shirt, her wail of loss. Paris. Delphine looks at her lost child and finally understands her courageous act of madness. Frankfurt. Franz watches televison. Thick smoke rising from a brick chimney. No, not Auschwitz. A cremation. His cremation. Geneva. Vittorio entwines two silken puppets in a splaying of legs, a lifting of buttocks and weeps for his unfaithful wife. Bournemouth. Willy and Reuben compete. They are taking turns to heave a huge Menorah from their shoulder. A fight to the death. Hampstead. A journal spews thick torpid pitch as it hisses in the flames. The hissing turns to popping. The popping to crackling. The crackling to wailing. Ghosts are set free. WARNING: This novel contains sexually explicit material
