9780007193806: The Forest of Souls

A gripping psychological thriller, taking the reader from 21st century Britain to the darkest days of war-torn Eastern Europe.

A passion for history had already cost Helen Kovacs her marriage. Now she’s paid with her life.

Helen had told no one of her research into the Nazi occupation of Eastern Europe. Even her closest friend and colleague, Faith Lange, had no idea – until she began retracing the dead woman’s steps.

Though the police have a suspect in custody, Faith is convinced that the murderer is still at large. And she is troubled, too, by the presence of Jake Denbigh, a journalist who appears to be investigating her grandfather, Marek, a refugee from the Eastern front.

Everything hinges on the memories of a 75-year-old whose will to survive preserved her through the horrors of minsk and the concentration camps, and enabled her to make a new life in England with her son.

Helen’s murder and its consequences will take Jake and faith on terrifying journeys: to Byelorussia where the mass graves of the kurapaty Forest have their own dreadful tale to tell; and into the heart of Faith’s own family where a tragic secret lies hidden…

Large Print, Paperback

Review:

A powerful thriller...(Banks) brings disturbingly alive the history of the Stalinist terrors and the brutal Nazi persecutions that followed. -- Daily Mail, April 22nd, 2005

A story to wrench at the heart and haunt the soul. -- Northern Echo, 29th March 2005

Dense with ideas about truth and betrayal, asylum and integration, acceptance and hatred...this is a satisfying crime novel -- Times Literary Supplement, April 22nd, 2005

It's implications and parallels are as sadly contemporary as anything in Buchan or Fleming - and rather more realistic. -- The Spectator, 23rd July, 2005
