Gambling with Darkness

(2003)
A novel by

 
A dangerous romance set against the drama and confusion of the closing days of World War II It is 1944. Honor Cusack is a first-year medical student at University College Dublin. She becomes involved with a young German doctor, Oscar Raeder, who has been studying in Dublin since before the war, and supports him when he is suspected of murdering a prostitute. Bridie Keogh was known to have soldiers - and rumoured to have German spies - among her clientele, but as her body is found in one of the preserving tanks in the dissection room, the entire medical faculty is under suspicion. A second murder - this time of a German spy - is also discovered inconveniently near where Raeder lives. As the horror of the concentration camps filters through, Raeder becomes the focus for hatred of Germany. And it turns out that his brother is a POW at the Curragh. Aghast at the prejudice the brothers encounter, and convinced that Raeder is no murderer, Honor agrees to help them both return to Germany, even though she knows this may mean the end of their relationship.
