About the book:
A YOUNG GIRL IS THE LAST WITNESS TO A HORRIFIC MASSACRE AT A PRISON CAMP IN THE BOSNIAN WAR. TWENTY YEARS LATER, THE FATE OF HER FAMILY AND HER LIFE DEPEND ON HER FINDING THE CRIMINALS RESPONSIBLE IN THIS HEART-POUNDING THRILLER.
TWENTY YEARS AGO, after the fall of Yugoslavia, the world watched in horror as thousands of people were killed in "ethnic cleansing" in Bosnia. Tens of thousands more were executed or imprisoned in death camps, in conditions comparable to Auschwitz. Carla Lane, a thirtysomething New Yorker, has little knowledge of what went on half-way around the world when she was just a child. She is living a near perfect life, married to a loving husband and soon to have a family of her own. But when her husband is murdered by a group of Serbian war criminals, strange visions start coming to her, and she discovers that she underwent extensive therapy as a girl to suppress her memories. She is given her mother's diary, which unlocks her childhood memories and reveals that she was, along with her parents and young brother, imprisoned in a war camp outside Sarajevo.
As her memories come back, it becomes clear that she is the last witness to a brutal massacre in the prison and that her brother may still be alive. She sets out to find him, but first she must hunt down the war criminals responsible for destroying her life: murderous, hard killers who will stop at nothing to protect their anonymity and their deadly pasts . . . who are also determined to silence the last witness to their crimes.
