This was a free download from the author for signing up to her mailing list.

In 1944 Prague a secret meeting takeds place between two agents. Whatever passes between them sets in place a series of events decades later in modern day Chicago.

Ellie Foreman is a divorced mother of one balancing her life between home and her career as a corporate fim maker. Out of the blue she receives a letter from a stranger inviting her to look through the positions of an elderly and recently deceased gerntleman - Ellie's name is found on a scrap of paper and he has no other known relatives. But who is he? And why does someone she has never heard of know who she is? These are just ten first of a number of question that grow in perplexity, importance and danger for Ellie and a growing number of new and possibly dangerous acquaintances.

The mystery brings to a head a tale of murder and political intrigue that has lain dormant for many decades...

This is a decent first book in the Ellie Foreman series. At £1.99 it's fairly priced for a few days reading. A good plot, good characters and a bit of learning about Judaism and Chicago history to boot. Chicago is the only city I've ever been to in the US - I enjoyed popping back.
