Online version: Fesperman, Dan, Small boat of great sorrows. Most of the labour is foreign and casual, and includes Vlado Petric, a former detective from Sarajevo, reduced to uncomfortable refugee status. Germany's buried past is brought into sharp relief with the unearthing of a bunker for SS drivers. This discovery prepares the way for a more complex and ambiguous historical excavation with Petric's uneasy return to his homeland.
The small boat of great sorrows : a novel
Hired by enigmatic Americans working for the international war crimes tribunal, Petric is run as a lure for an old soldier from the s involved in wholesale slaughter which, even by the standards of that war's genocide, took some beating. During the second world war Croatia gained independence by siding with the Nazis, and the puppet Ustashe government, with active encouragement from a militant Roman Catholic Church, embarked on a bloodthirsty programme of such atavistic hands-on savagery that even Nazi observers, advocates of more distanced methods of dispatch, blanched.
Having grown up in Tito's Yugoslavia, Petric's grasp of his country's history is obscured. Cultural amnesia makes his discoveries truly shocking. The painful lesson is compounded by his realisation of possible family involvement. The investigation becomes one of uncomfortable self-interrogation.

The American role then, as now, is not straightforward. Petric's quest takes him to Italy, back into a murky world of postwar horse-trading where ambitious young intelligence men like Angleton cut every corner to prepare for the fight against communism. Tightrope Marian Sutro , book 2 Simon Mawer.
