Set in the Warsaw ghetto during 1941, it features a psychologist certain that his nephew was deliberately murdered. Amidst the graphic and realistic depiction of the horrors of life in the ghetto with its pervasive aura of slow death by starvation, disease and brutality, the solving of a single crime seems odd - but it is an obsession which keeps Dr Cohen alive. And even after death his spirit survives to tell the story.

It is a clever well contructed novel, well written. I would willingly have given it 5 stars except that I was left so depressed at the end.
