Against the background of a Christian presence at Auchwitz, Carroll traces a complex relationship between Christians, Jews and Antisemitism in 2000 years of Christian history. A personalized and idiosyncratic history rather than a diadactic one.

I am always looking for new authors for mysteries or thrillers. I just discovered Coben, and found this book very engaging and unexpected.
