In a time of accusations, treachery and lies, some secrets were
heartbreaking... Others were deadly. Once, Nick Kotlar tried to
save his father. From the angry questions. From the accusations.
From a piece of evidence that only Nick knew about and that he
destroyed?for his father. But in the Red Scare of 1950 Walter
Kotlar could not be saved. Branded a spy, he fled the country,
leaving behind a wife, a young son?and a key witness lying dead
below her D.C. hotel room. Now, twenty years later, Nick will get a
second chance. Because a beautiful journalist has brought a message
from his long-lost father, and Nick will follow her into
Soviet-occupied Prague for a painful reunion. Confronting a father
he barely remembers and a secret that could change everything, Nick
knows he must return to the place where it all began: to unravel a
lie, to penetrate a deadly conspiracy, and to expose the one person
who knew the truth?and watched a family be destroyed.
