"From the author of Lie in the Dark (""A quite astonishing first novel""-Ian Rankin), The Small Boat of Great Sorrows is a mesmerizing thriller set amidst the ruins of war in Bosnia. Vlado Petric, former homicide detective in Sarajevo, is scraping together a living at a Berlin construction site when American investigator Calvin Pine recruits him to return home on a mission for the International War Crimes Tribunal. The assignment sounds simple enough: help round up an aging Nazi collaborator who has become a war profiteer. But for Petric the mission soon becomes a little too personal, and much too dangerous. Drawn inexorably into a labyrinth of stolen identities, looted gold, and painful family ties, Petric discovers that the dangers of the past can be as lethal as those of the present."
