Detective Rachel Getty trusts her boss, Esa Khattak, implicitly. But she's still uneasy at Khattak's secrecy when he asks her to look into Christopher Drayton's death. His fall from a cliff doesn't seem to warrant a police investigation. But when she learns that Drayton may actually have been a war criminal with ties to the Srebrenica massacre, Rachel understands why Khattak is tip-toeing around the case. As Rachel and Khattak dig deeper into the life and death of Drayton, every question seems to lead only to more questions, with no easy answers.

Detectives Esa Khattack and Rachel Getty are called to investigate the death of a rich philanthropist. Did he fall from a cliff or was it murder? And why was he living under an assumed name?
First book in the series.

Wonderful book, devastating way to learn more in depth about what happened in Bosnia, especially in 2017 in the USA. Well written, good characters, totally plausible story. Retained mystery. The author had a few glitches in the beginning that any good editor could have caught, but they are minor in view of the plot and its delivery.

Wonderful debut, a detective mystery set in Canada, that keeps unraveling till the very end. It's focused on the recent Bosnian history, ethnic cleansing of Muslims. Each chapter heading is an emotional historical quote that makes one ponder about Bosnia's and the world's history.

The fictional characters are somewhat stereotypical, yet, they are plentiful, and entertaining enough to make the book a satisfying read. The best character is Rachel, the strong, smart, and determined detective. I gave the book 4 stars for it's historical parts, for learning more about Srebrenica massacre of 1995 and related events, presented through narration of survivors. I look forward to reading more by Khan.

I learned more about Bosnia and the genocide in Srebrenica from this mystery than from any other source. Can't wait to read the author's second title!

This book is a must read. It is a mystery that take solace in Canada but has its roots in Bosnia. It is as it says in the back cover comments "[both] gripping and devastating)
