I'm enjoying this so far. While the big mystery is up front - who is the killer? - the smaller questions are pulling me in now. What did Serafina do? And what exactly were the circumstances that led to the children's death? I'm also drawn by the complexities - I tend to think of World War II as black and white. But what is the difference between a German, an Italian, and a Nazi?

So far, this is entertaining but definitely young adult. There's quite a bit of action, so I'm thinking junior high/high school boys would be a good audience. There is no subtlety in the writing - everything is spelled out.

It's starting to get intriguing. This book swaps back and forth in time, with newspaper articles interspersed between - just when something starts to get interesting, the point of view changes.

This was slow going at first - I have to like or at least feel a connection to the main character. Took a while, but I think I'm finally there.

Interesting so far - I'm not overly familiar with the British/Indian relationship in the 1930s, so this covers some new historical ground for me.

"When civilians are not asked to pay any price, it's easy to be at war - not just to intervene in a foreign land in the first place, but to keep on fighting there."

"Reagan had taken the remarkable posture that even just public debate on issues of war and peace was detrimental to our national security."

"Grenada was a tougher mission to back, but Tip O'Neill was also convinced that partisanship ended at the water's edge in wartime. Even in a war against a tiny, poorly armed island military, he was not going to criticize the president while American troops were in a fight."

"The farther we ventured, the more everything looked the same, as if each new street, park, or shopping mall was simply another version of our own, made from the same giant assembly kit. Only the names were different."
