This a book review of psychiatrist Dr. David Peretz’s first novel. It is a suspense thriller which tells the story of New York City detective Ross Corese as he travels to Vienna to learn about the history of some antique furniture which has been given to him by his father. He discovers more than he would imagine he would find about the origin of the furniture and about himself. The rise of the Nazi’s in Europe in 1938 and well as the modern rise of neo Nazism in Austria are all weaved into the story. There is romance, mystery and politics which adds up to a very good first nove.
