Ten Years Gone (Adam Lapid Book 1)
She gave up her son to save him. Now she wants him back.
Germany, 1939 – Henrietta Ackerland, a Jewish mother in Nazi Germany, makes a heart-rending decision. She gives her infant son to a friend who is fleeing Germany to the Land of Israel.
Henrietta plans on following soon, but World War II breaks out, stranding her in Europe.
Israel, 1949 – Henrietta finally arrives in Israel but she can’t find her son. She hires private investigator Adam Lapid to find him for her.
Adam Lapid knows it will take a miracle to find Henrietta’s missing child. And Adam doesn’t believe in miracles. Not after experiencing the horrors of Auschwitz. Not after losing his family in the Holocaust.
But he can’t refuse to help a mother searching for her lost son.
What Adam doesn’t realize is that this missing person’s case will soon land him in a heap of trouble.
For what starts as a hunt for a missing child soon turns Adam into prey – and of more than one hunter.
