Deray Ogdenabout this book: SECRETSINCITY is a story of cultural and personality clashes wrapped around the search for secrets contained in the walls of the WWII Ghetto Terezín. An ageing Holocaust survivor must endure the company of a young street girl and her unique ability to unravel the corruption that stems from his Ghetto days. She needs him to unravel her own family secrets. Together they attract those involved in the corruption and its involvement in the rise of the neo-nazis movement. This is a journey of discovery for both personally, sexually and emotionally with deadly consequences.
Writing this book over four years was an intimate journey through the history and hardship of the Czech Republic. From the Nazis to the Soviet occupation, the walls of Terezín have witnessed much and my two research visits exposed the unfinished business of reclaiming property lost to both. This set the base for the story and its thrilling outcome.
If you like historical thrillers, this is one with a difference. Contemporary in both characters and language and spanning the years between with strong imagery and sensitivity. Mostly described from the young street girl's point of view, she must come to grips with her own connection to the past, her future and her relationships. You will be drawn into her world and her mind and she will stay with you well beyond the final page.
