Ronald H. Balson is a Chicago trial attorney, an educator and a writer. His practice has taken him to several international venues, including villages in Poland that inspired ONCE WE WERE BROTHERS, his first novel.
Elliot Rosenzweig, a respected civic leader and wealthy philanthropist, is accused of being a former Nazi SS officer named Otto Piatek, the Butcher of Zamosc. Although the charges are denounced as preposterous, his accuser, Solomon, encourages attorney Catherine Lockhart to bring Rosenzweig to justice, revealing that the true Piatek was abandoned as a child and raised by Solomon's own family, only to betray them during the Nazi occupation. But has Solomon accused the right man?
