Book number two and a lot of history surrounds this compulsive tale, from Auschwitz to gangland America in the 50s and 60s but now our narrator is a woman, Annie, and my admiration for this author increases.  We are treated to trauma, past and present, and lives that affect Annie deeply as the truth unfolds.  It is breathtakingly good.

Ghostheart Synopsis

Annie O'Neill has it all: a cosy Manhattan apartment, a beautiful bookshop and a network of supportive friends. But at the heart of her life is a hole - a place vacated by her father when he died in her childhood.

 

So when a mysterious man named Forrester enters the shop and claims to be her father's oldest friend she jumps at the chance to find out more of her own past.

 

But Forrester's not being free with the answers she needs. He's much more interested in telling her a story about a ruthless ganglord and a fifty-year-old betrayal. A betrayal that she will realise far too slowly, has something very much to do with her...
