A ThrillerBook - 2014
When a con man steals his houseful of possessions in a sophisticated moving-day scam, Stanley Peke wanders helplessly through his empty New England home, inevitably reminded of another helpless time: decades ago, as a cold and threadbare Stanislaw Shmuel Pecoskowitz, he eked out a desperate existence in the war-torn Polish countryside, subsisting on scraps and dodging Nazi soldiers. Now, the seventy-two-year-old Peke must summon his original grit and determination to track down the thieves, retrieve his things, and restore the life he made for himself. Peke and his wife, Rose, trace the path of the thieves' truck across America, to the wilds of Montana, and to an ultimate, chilling confrontation with not only the thieves but also with Peke's brutal, unresolved past.
