Davidson realized that his grandfather was in many ways the "perfect Nazi," his individual experiences emblematic of the generation of Germans who would plunge the world into such darkness. But he also realized that every fact he uncovered was a terrible truth he himself would have to come to terms with...

In contrast to the classical detective story, the spy novel tends to be considered a suspect, somewhat subversive genre.
