By Lauren Grossman

General fiction, Crime & mystery, Historical fiction, Action & adventure, Women's fiction | Paperback, eBook


Combine a mystery, the Holocaust and an unexpected kinship between women of two generations and the result is this poignant novel. Author Rainee Allen comes across a souvenir she had received from the U.S. Holocaust Museum; a passport of a survivor. She kept the souvenir because the survivor's birthday shared her birthday (though 30 years apart). She decides to try to find out more information on this German girl named Jana. Realizing she may have an idea for her next novel, she travels to London to begin research. She finds Jana, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease. Rainee develops a relationship with her and finds out more about her past. As she uncovers long-held secrets, Rainee becomes entangled in events that put her in danger and leads her to relationships with two men; the director of Jana’s nursing facility, and the visiting doctor, who serves as a trigger causing Jana to relive the horrors of her past. Rainee embarks on a dangerous road involving Nazi hunters and sympathizers. Unsure which ones are following her, she enters a world of mystery in the alleys of London. The reader will be surprised with the shocking twist that occurs in THE GOLDEN PEACOCK. They’ll never see it coming.
