The Silent Children by Amna K. Boheim. Published by Matador

Max has received a letter from his estranged mother, Annabel – she’s asking for his help. Despite his anger at his mother for her lack of maternal care over the years, his curiosity is piqued. Annabel gives him an old photograph of herself and her friend Oskar Edelsten. On the back of the photo are the words “You knew”. Annabel explains that she wants Max to find Oskar, that the photo and the words written on the back are the reason she was never able to give Max the love he deserved.  In Vienna in 1938, something odd happened in the home of Annabel Albrecht, her maid Eva and her friend Oskar both disappeared, just before he mother was taken away. Now, decades later, Annabel’s son is determined to find out what happened all those years ago and hopefully connect with his mother while there is still time
