Description
"From the author of Lie in the Dark (""A quite astonishing first novel""-Ian Rankin), The Small Boat of Great Sorrows is a mesmerizing thriller set amidst the ruins of war in Bosnia. Vlado Petric, former homicide detective in Sarajevo, is scraping together a living at a Berlin construction site when American investigator Calvin Pine recruits him to return home on a mission for the International War Crimes Tribunal. The assignment sounds simple enough: help round up an aging Nazi collaborator who has become a war profiteer. But for Petric the mission soon becomes a little too personal, and much too dangerous. Drawn inexorably into a labyrinth of stolen identities, looted gold, and painful family ties, Petric discovers that the dangers of the past can be as lethal as those of the present."

Vlado Petric, a former homicide detective in Sarajevo, is now living in exile, and making a meagre living working at a Berlin construction site, when an American investigator for the International War Crimes Tribunal recruits him to return home on a mission. The assignment sounds simple enough. He is to help capture an aging Nazi collaborator who has become a war profiteer. But nothing is simple in the Balkans: Petric is also being used as bait to lure his quarry into the open, and when the operation goes sour he is drawn across Europe into a dangerous labyrinth of secret identities, stolen gold, and horrifying discoveries about his own family's past.

Intelligent and suspenseful, The Small Boat of Great Sorrows brings together chilling crimes, the lies people live and the cold facts of international politics into a masterful, electrifying thriller.
