Inhaltsangabe: This literary thriller features a fact researcher into the rougher world of investigative field work. Dicky Getz must try to clear a client of accusations he was an SS guard in the Holocost, despite his desire to be punished for something he may not have been. The author has a way with language, English and foreign, that makes this a delightful literary read that is part thriller, part "Lolita," part coming of "middle-age," and dealing with the opposite sex.
Über den Autor: Alan Hager entered Harvard College with sophomore standing, majoring in American history and literature. On discovering his main interest was in the literature of the British Isles, he became an English major and stayed an extra year. After graduation he took a sequence of courses at the Sorbonne and taught jazz music in French at the Lyee d'Ivry in a suburb of Paris. Following military service as an Army OCS air defense platoon leader and staff officer in Germany, he earned a doctorate at the University of California, Berkeley, later teaching courses in composition and Renaissance literature on all levels at the University of Oklahoma, Loyola University of Chicago, and SUNY Cortland where he is a professor of English. In 1976, he was an inaugural student at the School of Criticism and Theory at the University of California at Irvine. Hager has represented Loyola at the Center for Renaissance Studies at the Newberry Library, where he is soon to be a fellow.
