 Thoughts:
One of the popular gifts I get are Amazon gift cards, as many of us I try to stretch them out as much as I can (I don’t spend much money on myself anyway). A few times a year Amazon has Kindle book sales which is where I spend most of those gift cards on and one of those times I bought this book.

The Angles of Zin by Clifford Irving was a nice surprise when I read it. The book is well done and well written. The author doesn’t try to tackle on too much, but shows a slice of life and characters who tackle incredibly difficult moral dilemmas.

This book is not just another Holocaust story, or another murder mystery, the novel combines the two and becomes something more than the sum of its parts. The story is drawn in wonderful detail and the interactions between the Nazis and their Jewish prisoners are fascinating.

Synopsis:
Several Nazis are murdered in a Nazi concentration camp in Poland, and the Gestapo ordered the Berlin Criminal Police to investigate. The assignment falls to Paul Bach, Chief Homicide Inspector and a veteran from the Russian front.

Bach is at odds with what the government he represents is doing. As he hunts “The Angel”, who taunts him with notes and clues.
