The Forest of Souls

by Carla Banks

English granddaughter researches Polish grandfather's past as a possible war criminal, so far so stereotypical. BUT Carla Banks really makes something of the theme - successfully combining the horror of life in 1940's Belarus with a mystery Agatha Christie would have been proud of. Highly recommended - unless you want an entirely happy ending or aren't interested in the history of a previously little known (to me)part of Eastern Europe.

Jake had been convinced that Grandpa came from Belarus, or had been in Belarus during the war. Maybe he was right. These men had been platoon commanders in some kind of police force whose brutality had startled even the German occupiers.
