    Summary

    “I shall never forget the weekend Sansa died….” New York, 1947. When young fashion magazine editor Sansa Stark is found murdered in her apartment, Detective Sandor Clegane questions those closest to her in life: her Pygmalion mentor and famous columnist Petyr Baelish and her playboy fiancé Harrold Hardyng. The more testimony he hears about Sansa’s warm, charming character – and the more this reminds him of an episode from his own past – Sandor finds himself falling under the dead woman’s spell…but all is not as it seems. Follows the plot to the classic 1944 film noir Laura.

    Summary

    Nazi Germany was on the rise, two Jewish brothers being separated in 1936 at ages 14 and 17 and taken to different parts of Europe in an attempt to wait the impending war out.
    Raymond Davies at age 20 enlisted with the German army, having been poisoned by the propaganda put forth to him. He bleached his hair with hair bleach he'd stolen when he still lived in England, bringing along a book to teach himself German.
    Dave, aged 17, was being threatened constantly when his mother sent him to try and go to France, starting to rustle suspicion there. When he found out what had been going on at different camps, he caught wind of an awfully familiar name stationed at a camp close to the French border. Instead of going back to England, he took himself to the very camp his people were being exterminated at, giving a shot as trying to save if even a few. Posing as an English exchange student looking to work switchboard and bookkeeping for extra money wasn't the best idea, but it was the one that ended up working.
