it was amazing
Read in March, 2011

A truly intelligent version of Leo's life and encounter with the early twentieth century's cascade of wars.
Leo Hoffman begins with finding the love of his life, Martha, at the same time that his native country, Hungary, sucks him into illegalities. He must leave his love and survive under lies. The same lies that give him a new life bring Martha to him in the city he fled to for safety, Shanghai. Lies and evidence can never be hidden forever. They follow Leo and continually guide his decisions. All he wants is the best for his wife an daughter, although happiness and disaster are close cousins.
After reading this, I immediately ordered the sequel.
