    Journalist Hannah Vogel can't seem to stay away from Nazi Germany, despite being wanted by the Gestapo. This time, she is in Poland in 1938, when 12,000 Polish Jews are deported from Germany. After finding the wife of a friend among the refugees, she promises to help find the woman's missing daughter. Unfortunately, that leads to being kidnapped by the SS. She escapes her captors, thanks to the intervention of her former lover, Lars, and her teenage son, Anton, but there is no place to run except back to Berlin. Torn between trying to find the missing girl and concocting an escape strategy, Hannah jumps from one near disaster to another, all the while trying to protect Anton and pondering whether she can trust Lars. Set just before, during, and immediately after Kristallnacht, when the Nazis declared open warfare on Jews, the novel uses its historical moment to full advantage, though the suspense is ladled on a bit thickly (Hannah's heels clicking across Berlin while Gestapo sirens wail in the background). Still, Cantrell mixes history and human drama effectively, and series fans will willingly stay the course. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
