Gabriella, a striking, thirty year old Austrian Holocaust survivor is the driving force behind a secret Jewish organization (Nokmim) that hunts down Nazi criminals for the singular purpose of retribution.
But her group, and much of the purpose of her life, is dying out. Flush with the success of capturing Adolf Eichmann in Argentina in 1960, Gabriella’s compatriots are turning away from the unsavory, back alley justice that is her specialty.
Resistant to the changing tides, Gabriella heads to Central America on what could be her final assignment; tracking down Friedrich Guderian, an SS Major renowned for brutality in Chelmno and Treblinka concentration camps.
Her search leads her to the Central Highlands of Nicaragua, where she crosses paths with Christian Logansfriar, a German missionary. Gabriella is forced to take up residence in a remote village while she tries to determine if Christian, a seemingly good and devout Catholic priest, is in fact the Nazi butcher, Friedrich Guderian.
From the reviewers:
“A fast-paced and deeply enjoyable debut novel…” KIRKUS REVIEWS
The Parachutist’s Daughter is a deeply poignant and riveting read. – Amy Edelman
A gripping mix of history and intrigue. The Parachutist’s Daughter is an excellent, well written story peppered with facts, romance, history and excitement. This book had my attention from the very beginning. At times I found myself completely empathizing with Gabriella’s mission and at other times found myself wondering if “two wrongs don’t make a right” was the better perspective. The book is entertaining but also very thought provoking. I look forward to more from Mr. McNulty. – Larry
The Parachutist’s Daughter was a page turner! If you are looking for a fast-paced book with elements of romance, murder and intrigue peppered with historical facts from WW II then this is the book for you. You find yourself in Jerusalem then Nicaragua with flashbacks to Austria and Poland. I could not put my Kindle down while reading it. – Tessa
I was hooked within the first chapter of this great description of Gabriella and her Nazi killing in response to World War II. The entire book created such an amazing conflict within me as I learned more and more about her story. Such a great read and I can’t wait for the next book. – “KB”
