In the ruins of an abandoned Soviet military hospital in northern Hungary, two impoverished Roma boys are scavenging for old supplies or weapons they could sell on the black market when they find more than they ever anticipated. The resulting chain of events threatens to blow the lives of a frightening number of people into bits and pieces.
In this feverishly anticipated follow-up to 2011’s critically acclaimed The Boy in the Suitcase, Danish Red Cross nurse Nina Borg doesn’t realize she is putting life and family on the line when she tries to treat a group of sick Hungarian gypsies who are living illegally in a Copenhagen garage. Nina has unwittingly thrown herself into a deadly nest of the unscrupulous and the desperate, and what is at stake is much more terrifying than anyone had realized.

Katy Kellgren's reading is AMAZING. She's dramatic without being OVERdramatic, and is easy to listen to.
I LOVED The Boy in the Suitcase, so was eagerly awaiting this new book. It's as good as everyone says - as good as the first, with more Nina Borg character development. Don't want to give away anything, but there are definite surprises along the way.
Recommended to mystery & thriller fans. :)
I purchased this because it part of the Soho Crime Press catalog and I usually enjoy international stories. The story was a bit confusing and was not helped by what were obvious production glitches. Once would have been ok but they kept happening, as if the editors forgot to delete mistakes of narrator.
