The next Nina Borg book, following 2011’s surprise hit, The Boy in the Suitcase, is to be pounced on. These are serious mysteries about serious topics and people. A Red Cross nurse working with refugees and immigrants, Nina is complicated. Through her it is possible to appreciate the hard decisions those working with displaced people face, though on a more dramatic level.
In Hungary, two young Gypsies find supplies left in a Soviet military hospital. What they think will be a treasure in their poverty-stricken lives turns out to be a trap that spreads across countries. In Denmark, Nina works on another heartbreaking case, despite her husband’s insistence she not get involved in any more dangerous situations. But when she finds and treats a family of sick Hungarian Roma, she is thrown into an international nightmare that threatens her family and many others. (SOHO, Oct., 352 pp., $25.00)
