BLOODLINES

“This book is magnificent!  It gives a precious and fascinating insight in a dark, murderous and very complex period of our time.  It is brilliantly written and well researched.  It brings light into the dark memory of this century.”
—Jean Ziegler, author of The Swiss, the Gold, and the Dead

“Bruce Ducker has taken a story from international headlines and turned it into an intricate and intriguing new novel....A story that combines a young man’s search for his roots with a treatise on just how low greed can take the worst of us.  By inserting a touch of history and a smidgen of a love story, Ducker has created a captivating tale.”
—Denver Post

“An intensely revealing fable out of today’s headlines in this story of a young American in pursuit of his family’s ties to Swiss bank accounts looted from Holocaust victims....Arranging to have every door open as if by magic Ducker provides a rising spiral of thrills... in his best novel yet.”
—Kirkus Review

“...timely, suspenseful, and historically detailed...”
—Publishers Weekly

“...Skillfully blends past and present while expanding the story of a personal quest into events of international significance....Ducker...is a powerful writer combining a sharp eye for telling details and a keen ear for nuances of language.  His new tale is well worth a reader’s attention.” 
—Scripps Howard News Service

“…a philosophic thriller….”
—Newsday

......................................................................................................

Peter Steinmuller, a young American jazz pianist, is stranded in Switzerland after his band gets fired from a cruise ship. When he responds to an intriguing newspaper ad, he finds himself on a convoluted path that covers three continents; a path that may lead to fortune and his own ancestry.

Two appealing women—the brisk American Matey and the cosmopolitan Helene—share Peter’s life as he is alternately befriended and betrayed by an enigmatic figure who holds the keys to his quest.

Skillfully blending fiction with today’s headlines—how Switzerland handled the assets of Jews who perished in World War II—Bruce Ducker weaves a compelling story of neutrality and action, cruelty and sex.
