The black life

The story is told in alternating chapters, a narrative set in the present day and also a first person harrowing account of the persecution of the Holocaust years. Whilst it is an indictment of the wartime collaboration and subsequent profiteering to which many countries turned a blind eye, and whilst it also underlines the extent of anti-Semitism still existing in Greece and elsewhere today, the novel also contains accounts of working life in the concentration camps and how survival of some Jews might depend on their working for the SS and even sending one's own family members to their deaths in the gas chambers. This is the latest outing for half-Greek, half-Scottish Private Investigator, Alex Mavros.

  • "Wealthy jeweller Eliezer Samuel contacts half Greek half Scots PI Alex Mavros after his Uncle Aron is spotted in the streets of Thessaloniki in northern Greece: but that's impossible - Aron Samuel perished in Auschwitz more than sixty years before. The case takes an even stranger twist when Mavros, accompanied by Eliezer's enigmatic daughter Rachel, travels to Thessaloniki to question the elderly witness. Ester Broudo denounces Aron Samuel as a traitor and a murderer. Was he really a Nazi collaborator? Mavros' investigations will uncover tragic and terrible secrets from the war and its aftermath, resulting in devastating present-day consequences."
