Now, Father Anselm is called upon to investigate this betrayal—and its connection to his friend.Father Anselm must peel back years of history, decades of secrets, and a half-century of lies of the brutal and oppressive Soviet occupation of Poland in order to expose a truth so shocking that an entire generation was killed to keep it hidden.
