The Sixth Lamentation by William Brodrick

The Sixth Lamentation

William Brodrick

A real page-turning thriller but also a book that looks at love, revenge and responsibility as the modern descendants of survivors of the French Occupation look for justice for their grandparents. Plus a twist in the tail that is more than worthy of Le Carre. Do read this book.

Extract

'After he'd gone, I looked. There was a report to Eichmann and an interrogation record - a handwritten record and a typed copy - with all the names of the ring set down, spilled within minutes of being slapped about. He'd told them everything'.
'Who had?' blurted out Anselm.
