Description
Governess-turned-sleuth Miss Silver looks into the case of a Holocaust survivor who may have enemies to elude. William Smith isn't sure what his name is, but he knows it isn't William Smith. That was the name the Nazis gave him in 1942, when he was herded, along with so many others, into one of their nightmarish camps. They did their best to kill him, but he survived. Now the war is over and he's back in England, ready to start over. But even a man with no past can't escape history. William may yet learn his real name--but it could cost him his life in this suspenseful mystery starring an investigator who "has her place in detective fiction as surely as Lord Peter Wimsey or Hercule Poirot" ( Manchester Evening News ).

display_description An amnesiac Holocaust survivor steps into a mystery that only Miss Silver can solve William Smith is not sure what his name is, but he doubts it's William Smith, the name the Nazis gave him when he wandered out of one of their hospitals in 1942, to be herded, along with so many others, into one of their nightmarish camps. They did their best to kill this man without a name, but he survived because a man with no identity has nothing to fear. Now, the war over, he is back in England, ready to make a new life. But even a man with no past cannot escape history. William Smith is about to find himself enmeshed in a terrifying mystery, which only Maud Silver, the staunch, old-fashioned detective, can solve. He may yet learn his name, but it could cost him his life.
