A review by libraryjunkie
A Trace of Smoke by Rebecca Cantrell


This was a well-written historical novel that had me hooked from the first chapter. The novel boasts strong character development along with a fast paced and suspenseful storyline. It presents a look into the personal life of prominent Nazi soldiers and Nazi Germany that is not often depicted. Though this novel is fiction, it weaves enough nonfiction facts into the story, and it is very easy for the reader to forget it is fiction and take what is being read as fact. I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in crime/murder mysteries and Nazi Germany. I look forward to the continuing story with her next novel.
