Moving Day: A Thriller by Jonathan Stone
Forty yearsâ€™ accumulation of art, antiques, and family photographs are more than just objects for Stanley Pekeâ€”they are proof of a life fully lived. A life he could have easily lost long ago.
When a con man steals his houseful of possessions in a sophisticated moving-day scam, Peke wanders helplessly through his empty New England home, inevitably reminded of another helpless time: decades in Pekeâ€™s past, a cold and threadbare Stanislaw Shmuel Pecoskowitz eked out a desperate existence in the war-torn Polish countryside, subsisting on scraps and dodging Nazi soldiers. Now, the seventy-two-year-old Pekeâ€”who survived, came to America, and succeededâ€”must summon his original grit and determination to track down the thieves, retrieve his things, and restore the life he made for himself.
Peke and his wife, Rose, trace the path of the thievesâ€™ truck across America, to the wilds of Montana, and to an ultimate, chilling confrontation with not only the thieves but also with Pekeâ€™s brutal, unresolved past.
