An old Jewish man is killed at the U.N. building, and a young professional unexpectedly finds himself the investigator. He falls for the old man's daughter, who—and why didn't we guess this?—has a powerful secret. It's understandable why Sam Bourne’s work has been compared to Dan (THE DA VINCI CODE) Brown’s. But Bourne has the advantage—with original characters, stronger dialogue, and a plot that has gravitas—much of it dealing with repression in the Kovno Ghetto during WWII (in what is now Lithuania). Narrator Adam Sims does a swell job delivering the goods and is especially strong with accents. Check out his subtle Lithuanian accent, used for the diary readings.
