While the method of illuding the Nazis mentioned in this book is one which doubtless would have been used this particular story itself is fictional These events are not drawn from one particular case rather the author says he got the idea from the story of Nicholas Owen a Jesuit lay brother who devoted the greater part of his life to constructing hiding places to protect the lives of persecuted priests during the reign of Elizabeth 1In 1942 Paris all Jewish people are being rounded up by the Nazis sadly for the Jews most of the French are unsympathetic to their plight Lucien Bernard is one of those French people he doesn t hate Jewish people but he wont go out of his way for them either He s an out of work architect too busy scrambling for a living A prospective client a very wealthy Auguste Manet offers him a new commission but only if he will agree to a secret commission Manet has been helping Jewish people evade and escape persecution and imminent death Desperate for money Lucien agrees but he s under no illusions about himself he s doing it purely for the money Life under the Boche regime is tough and he has a wife and a mistress to support As the first job is successful Manet talks Lucien into a second then a third and the work becomes almost like private game Lucien is having with the Nazis he loves the thrill of tricking them But it all gets personal for Lucien when Manet convinces him to care for a Jewish boy for a couple of weeks Lucien suddenly has the son he s always wantedThe story has not many likeable characters excepting perhaps Manet and Bette The Nazis are of course deplorable and the attitude of the French people toward the Jews leaves so much to be desired Charles Belfoure is the author of a couple of books about architectural history which I have not read But I m not convinced of his talent as a novelist Basically the story is very plausible and uite readable but his narration is somewhat stilted I did actually check to see whether the book had been translated from another language because for me that is how it flows It feels uite stilted and there is something amiss with the patternsflow of sentences Perhaps he just needs another editor who knows A story which maybe would have been a 4 star rating in the hands of a practised novelist but with Charles Belfoure it has to be only a 3

The only thing this book has going for it is a good premise Seriously I love historical fiction character development in trying times and moral uandaries Also architecture And plots set abroad I wasn t expecting anything high brow just a good plot driven escape But Let me count the ways that this book failed1 The writing is atrocious No really it s clunky and the dialogue is about as stilted as you can get 2 Most of the characters lack the motivation for the actions they carry out People are treacherous or noble or somewhere in between without any prior reason given for their actions I know people sometimes do things out of the blue but check this spoiler view spoiler a kid who we previously only see as good hearted studious and shy kills another character without any warning Sure the character who gets killed totally deserved it but the kid never appears to wrestle with any feelings about this incident one way or the other before or after hide spoiler
