Synopsis: After reading a graduate student's thesis about the fate of Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Jews in Budapest from 1944 to 1945, Professor Manny Gellerman--part-time detective, historian, and novelist--follows the twists and turns along unorthodox paths and uncovers some uncomfortable truths that may explain what happened when Wallenberg was arrested by the Soviets in 1945, taken to Moscow, and left to fester in a Lybianka prison.
The fate of Raoul Wallenberg has remained a mystery for seventy years, and Alan Lelchuk's novel Searching for Wallenberg uses a fictional investigation to explore the real question of what happened.
