"Evocative, and inspiring ... So much more than a true crime." - Steve Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of NO STONE UNTURNED

After surviving the horrors of the Holocaust – in ghettos, on death marches, and in concentration camps – a young couple seeks refuge in Canada. They settle into a new life, certain that the terrors of their past are behind them. They build themselves a cozy little cottage on a lake in Muskoka, a cottage that becomes emblematic of their victory over the Nazis. The charming retreat is a safe haven, a refuge from haunted memories.

That is, until a single act of unspeakable violence defiles their sanctuary. Poking around the dark crawl space beneath their cottage, they discover a wooden crate, nailed tightly shut and almost hidden from view. Nothing could have prepared them for the horror of the crate’s contents – or how the peace and tranquility of their lives would be shattered.

Paperback, 358 pages

I was binge watching "Cold Justice" and one of the cases was of a body found in a Rubbermaid container in a man's shed.

Fishface | 12072 comments Reading this now. VERY hard to put down. I love the way the book contrasts an utterly normal life in Ontario (which is far more normal than an utterly normal life in Michigan) with the horrific events of the Holocaust and the body turning up in the middle of it all.

It's not at all what I was expecting. I was totally expecting more of a Sadako Yamamura scenario, with the ugly secret waiting there all along for someone to come and find it.
