In the seamy world of Miami Beach's Collins Avenue, Mila Katz lives by the wits with which she survived the Holocaust.

Her son, Duncan Katz, grew up under his mother's psychotic tutelage to become a highly educated government lawyer and Nazi hunter. Yet, under the veneer of worldly success, Duncan remains imprisoned by an inherited rage. When he improperly prosecutes a former camp guard, Duncan loses his job, then his marriage. Wandering through the remains of memory and family, Duncan confronts a mystery whose resolution dominates the narrative of this tense, absorbing, yet darkly comic novel.
