From the Publisher
Annotation When Buddy Boyle falls in love with the rich Skye Pennington, he knows he's in over his head. After all, the son of a police detective doesn't have the same advantages as the wealthy. To impress Skye on their first date, Buddy takes her to his cultured grandfather's house--even though Buddy hasn't seen him since he was small. Soon Buddy starts staying with his grandfather, and eventually moves in--only to discover that his grandfather is the notorious SS guard, Gentlehands.
Editors Note A teenage boy falls in love with an "upper-class" girl and gets to know his estranged grandfather in one heartbreaking summer which climaxes in a shattering search for Nazi war criminals.
