The body of ninety-two-year-old Jossi Goldberg, Holocaust survivor and American citizen, is found shot to death, execution style, in his house near Frankfurt. A five-digit number is scrawled in blood at the murder scene. The autopsy reveals an old and unsuccessfully covered tattoo on the corpse's arm--a blood type marker once used by Hitler's SS. Detectives Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver Bodenstein are faced with a riddle. Was the old man not Jewish, after all? Who was he, really? When two murders are reported under suspiciously similar circumstances--one of a wheelchair-bound elderly woman in a nursing home, and one of a man who had a cellar filled with Nazi paraphernalia--connections between the victims slowly come to light: All of them were lifelong friends with a baroness who is also a well-respected philanthropist and head of an old, rich family that she rules with an iron fist. Pia and Oliver follow the trail, which leads them all the way back to the end of World War II and the area of Poland that then belonged to East Prussia. No one is who they claim to be in this wild-goose chase that is quickly turning into a ghost hunt through clues and secrets that have long since been forgotten. *****The third book in the Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein series. FIRST IN THE TRANSLATED SERIES. I really liked this German mystery, but there were so many characters that I kept losing track of exactly who was who - of course that is in part the root of the story line. I will definitely seek out more titles by this author. Kristi & Abby Tabby
