Read in February, 2008

An unusual mystery, not a "whodunit" but rather a quest for familial answers. Young Simon Thorn was one of the children sent out of London to live with foster families in the country during the bombardments of WWII. It soon becomes clear that Simon Thorn is not his real name, but no one knows where he came from or why he's alone. As an adult Simon embarks on a quest to find his roots, only to meet some rather unsavory characters.
