About the book: When Greta Hahn moves to a beautiful new home, the looming presence of Buchenwald prison camp is the only blot to mar her idyllic life. Her husband, the camp’s administrator, wrestles with corruption that is rife at every level, inadequate supplies, and a system under strain.

Greta’s obliviousness is challenged when she is forced into an unlikely alliance with one of Buchenwald’s prisoners, Dr Lenard Weber. A decade earlier he invented a machine that he believed could cure cancer. Whether it works or not, it might yet save a life.

‘Intelligent, lyrical, disciplined and observant, she is the real deal, the star of her generation.’ NZ Listener
