Roza Grundstein learned at the age of five that evil sometimes rules. The tattoo on her wrist is living proof. She has lived a life avenging the lives of those who weren’t as fortunate as she was. Her days are dwindling and only a day at the track can raise her spirits.

 

Roza has raised her grandson Hersh Grundstein to follow in her footsteps. Along with his best friend Frankie, their protégé Betty, a dog named Clemenza, and the teachings of Raymond Chandler, they protect those who cannot protect themselves. Somehow they can see the humor in all of this until the Feds take an interest. Hersh is on the run knowing that his grandmother is probably no longer an asset and the woman he loves is the one chasing him down.

She made a promise in desperation
Now it's time to keep it

Lena Woodward, elegant and poised, has lived a comfortable life among Chicago Society since she immigrated to the US and began a new life at the end of World War II. But now something has resurfaced that Lena cannot ignore: an unfulfilled promise she made long ago that can no longer stay buried.

Driven to renew the quest that still keeps her awake at night, Lena enlists the help of lawyer Catherine Lockhart and private investigator Liam Taggart. Behind Lena’s stoic facade are memories that will no longer be contained. She begins to recount a tale, harkening back to her harrowing past in Nazi-occupied Poland, of the bond she shared with her childhood friend Karolina. Karolina was vivacious and beautiful, athletic and charismatic, and Lena has cherished the memory of their friendship her whole life. But there is something about the story that is unfinished, questions that must be answered about what is true and what is not, and what Lena is willing to risk to uncover the past. Has the real story been hidden these many years? And if so, why?

Two girls, coming of age in a dangerous time, bearers of secrets that only they could share.

Just when you think there could not be anything new to ferret out from World War II comes Karolina's Twins, a spellbinding new novel by the bestselling author of Once We Were Brothers and Saving Sophie. In this richly woven tale of love, survival and resilience during some of the darkest hours, the unbreakable bond between girlhood friends will have consequences into the future and beyond.
