An OK read. The plot was interesting -- a son looking for the grave in Germany of his WWII father finds it missing. He stubles onto a mystery someone does not want solved. The girl/love interest was lacking in reality since he starts the story with a wife. But the adventure was plausable and the action at the right speed. I wouldn't put off reading something else for this story but it would be good for a vacation or traveling book.
Good suspense, keeps you wondering what is happening and wanting to know keeps you reading
