This brilliantly imagined novel [is] part courtroom drama, part historical reckoning. Chock-full of finely wrought detail about the war and dashed with suspense and intrigue, it's a must-read for historical fiction buffs. --Newsweek

The storytelling is gripping, and the book showcases the unity and bravery of the Danish people in saving most of their population of Jews during World War II. --Bookreporter

More chilling than anything from the pen of Stephen King, Defending Britta Stein is a redemptive tale of seeking justice and setting the record straight...It will stay with you long after the final page is turned." --Jay Roberts, Mystery Scene

I have always had a fascination with WWII, and reading this book gave me an insight to the way the Danish people managed to thwart the German occupation of their country. Good triumphing over evil is something to cheer for. --Deadly Pleasures

This is historical fiction at its best...mystery, intrigue, suspense, and history, all intertwined into a riveting novel. --Elise Cooper, Military Press

I love the Liam Taggart and Catherine Lockhart novels. They're always well written and the characters are like old friends to visit every year...Another winner from Ronald H. Balson. --Red Carpet Crash

Praise for Eli's Promise:

A captivating saga of the Holocaust and its aftermath spanning decades and continents...Balson's meticulous historical detail, vivid prose and unforgettable characters further solidify his place among the most esteemed writers of historical fiction today. --Pam Jenoff, bestselling author of The Lost Girls of Paris

A powerful, superbly crafted tale...equal parts heartbreaking and life affirming, with themes that are as relevant today as ever. Eli's Promise is historical fiction at its finest, a riveting page turner that will hook readers from the start. --Jane Healey, bestselling author of The Beantown Girls

Balson pulls no punches...His story is a five star version of a period of history that proved a horror for those living in it. --Stacy Alesi, BookBitch

Balson juggles between his three stories effectively, writing with great emotion but without overt melodrama, always aware of the tragic ways in which history repeats itself. --Bill Ott, Booklist

Praise for The Girl from Berlin:
...dynamic plotting, compelling characters, and back-and-forth between-eras unvarnished testament to the ugly truth. --Library Journal

A fascinating mystery that will stick with readers for weeks. --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Balson never disappoints with his rich, historical thrillers." --Alyson Richman, bestselling author of The Lost Wife

"A fascinating, fast-paced dual-narrative that I could not put down. It is a heart-wrenching story of survival, hope and, ultimately, redemption that is sure to thrill!" --Jane Healey, author of The Saturday Evening Girls Club
