The Resistance: A Thriller - Peter Steiner This was in interesting read, a thriller and a detective story, with one foot firmly planted in each genre. The reluctance to examine the past that is a major difficulty in examining a 50 year old crime is explained by the careful examination of the self-conflicted problems of each of the participants, then and now. Very enjoyable for how the novel brought this reader to a better understanding of the complexities of living in an occupied country. It might be interesting to ask or imagine the result of asking an Iraqi citizen what they thought about this, if they read this book, and lived in-country during the last 10 years.
