Janet Dawson. Witness to Evil (1997) 297 pp.
Bay Area private investigator Jeri Howard can scarcely believe that
someone is actually paying her to go to Paris, even if it is only to fetch
a wild teenager home. But the wanderer, eighteen-year-old Darcy, turns
out to have a serious reason for her unauthorized jaunt: to visit Holocaust
memorials and to meet the French family who sheltered her grandmother as
a girl from the Nazis. But back home in California, Darcy stumbles on evidence
that Nazism is alive and well in the terrifying present. And Jeri has the
deadly work of trying to extricate Darcy from the frightening consequences
of her discovery.
