"you are alive" he answers

This book has a little bit of everything from a murder mystery to so much more, and when you've finished reading the book, if you are the kind of person who likes to look deeper than the surface of a story this book will give you that incentive. Anne Lorelli is a woman who has what many woman would like, a comfortable wealthy life with a successful husband. She has everything on the surface materialistically, but underneath the facade of her marriage, the love and companionship she desires is not there anymore. It is ironic that on the eve of their wedding anniversary, while they took a stroll along the river, they are accosted by a couple of muggers. When her husband tries to stop them from taking her necklace, he is killed. It seems to be a simple robbery/homicide case at first but evidence comes to light that reveals it is much more than just that.Tom Hogan, the detective, was suspicious about Anne's reaction to the death of her husband-she was too cold, and yet he is drawn to her. Anne finds solace from new acquaintances, a couple of holocaust victims and a group she has agreed to help as a volunteer in a neighborhood that is in a seedy area.The story kept me involved throughout the story. It contained stories within the main story-like surviving the holocaust, surviving in a drug and gang related neighborhood and the dark secrets of the successful, family revelations of sorrow-no one was immune, no class of people left out. It also is a story that gives one the feeling of hope and faith. I highly recommend it.

Good Book!

I really enjoyed reading this book! I'm not a big reader, but one day I got ambitious and bought this book... hoping it would be interesting. It was! Not only was it full of surprises, it also had some history in it. I recommend this to anyone! My Aunt is reading it now!

A Real Page Turner

I thought that this book was excellent. At first when my sister gave it to me to read it didn't seem interesting. I then decided to read it and I couldn't put it down. It is really realistic and worthwhile to have in your library.

Fascinating in-depth setting of the Holocaust Museum

I found this book to be riveting. The setting and the historical information about the holcaust was used beautifully to show how a person who has been through a tragedy can learn, grow, and change. I felt there was more wisdom and real human interest than in many other murder mysteries I have read. I expecially liked the descriptions of the Holocaust Museum in DC and the use of the holocaust survivors to help the main character come to terms with her own tragedy. A very good read.
