Historical Fiction • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Just who is the worldly, sensuous, and enigmatic woman called Stella, aka Kristen, at the heart of this novel? Narrators Will Damon and Shayna Small answer that question as they deliver this disturbing yet engrossing work. With clarity and conviction, Damon delivers the story of Swiss art student Fritz, who is obsessed with Stella, an art class model in Berlin in 1942. Then he discovers she sings at various jazz clubs he frequents. Later, Fritz and the listener learn that Stella is not just a model, a chanteuse, an exciting lover--she's also a Jewish "Jew catcher." In a flat and prosecutorial voice, narrator Shayna Small reads transcripts from Stella's 1946 trial that list the Jewish families she turned over to the Gestapo.
