Recently saw the movie (Jon Voight was surprisingly good) and thought...hmmm...have I read this? Because it was written to take place in the seventies it wasn't dated at all - very fresh. And of course John Forsyth is a good author anyway. Great movie, great read. I'm going to read it one more time then pass it on via my favorite - PBS.

Excellent book! It held my attention throughout each page and the level of tension was kept consistently high. I would highly recommend it.

I lost so many family members in the Holocaust and it is a subject I find difficult to read about or watch a movie about, but this book was meant to be read and I'm glad I did read it.

Even though the book was written quite awhile ago, the story and subject is still vivid and powerful.
