From the Publisher:
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.Buddy Boyle lives year-round with his family in unfashionable Seaville, New York, in a cramped little house on the bay. Skye Pennington spends the summers nearby on lavish estate complete with ocean view and a butler named Peacock.

But Skye and Buddy fall in love anyway. And every once in a while they visit Buddy's estranged grandfather, who makes them forget they're from opposite sides of town. Then a reporter appears, searching for a man known as Gentlehands, a man with a horrifying past. Who is Gentlehands? And what is his connection to Buddy's handsome, aristocratic grandfather? The mystery threatens to shatter Buddy and Skye's relationship, and change their lives forever.

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.
