Strangers in Budapest

Now available in paperback from Algonquin Books

Budapest: gorgeous city of secrets, with ties to a shadowy, bloody past. It is to this enigmatic European capital that a young American couple, Annie and Will, move from Boston with their infant son shortly after the fall of the Communist regime. For Annie, it is an effort to escape the ghosts that haunt her past, and Will wants simply to seize the chance to build a new future for his family. Eight months later, their lives—and their marriage—are thrown into turmoil when an elderly Jewish American WWII veteran, bent on revenge against a man he believes seduced, married, and then murdered his daughter, reaches out for help.
