Silent Lies by M. Malcolm
Book DescriptionInspired by true stories from the author's family, "Silent Lies"] tells the story of Leo Hoffman, a dashing young Hungarian with a gift for languages who inadvertently becomes embroiled in an international counterfeiting scheme during the general chaos following WWI. When the botched plans end in a murder, Leo flees to the scandal-filled city of Shanghai, hoping to make a new life there for himself and the woman he loves. However, one small compromise sets off a series of events that will eventually threaten everything he holds dear, as Leo discovers that the nefarious gangsters who run Shanghai from the shadows do not intend to let him escape his past. Malcolm blends real historical figures with fascinating fictional characters to recreate an engrossing but rarely-explored piece of the past. Filled with intrigue, passion, history and adventure, "Silent Lies"] recaptures a glittering world that no longer exits, while spinning the riveting tale of a family caught up in the tumultuous events of the decadent era between the two world wars.
