    Wow. This was some heavy stuff. When a young man named Avi Arutiyan finds some old letters written by a survivor of Auschwitz to his dead grandfather, he is compelled to unravel the truth about the man's death. Thus begins ELEOS by D.R. Bell, a powerful piece of historical fiction that unflinchingly delves into some seriously dark corners of the human soul. Played out over many years, against the stark backdrops of the Armenian Genocide, the Holocaust, and the trials of a number of inhuman war cri Wow. This was some heavy stuff. When a young man named Avi Arutiyan finds some old letters written by a survivor of Auschwitz to his dead grandfather, he is compelled to unravel the truth about the man's death. Thus begins ELEOS by D.R. Bell, a powerful piece of historical fiction that unflinchingly delves into some seriously dark corners of the human soul. Played out over many years, against the stark backdrops of the Armenian Genocide, the Holocaust, and the trials of a number of inhuman war criminals, Avi gradually discovers a complex web of secrets that ultimately connects three different families. As I have already noted, ELEOS deals with some very heavy subject matter, but Mr. Bell deftly weaves the true horrors of history with a satisfying and emotional fictional story. This one is gonna stick with me for some time, and I cannot recommend it more highly. In the interest of full transparency, I was provided with a complimentary copy of ELEOS from Mr. Bell (thank you, kind sir!) and this is my honest review.

    Again, just like with The Metronome...what a cover and what a story. This book is simply overwhelming. I enjoyed the notes at the end almost as much as the story. I once met a German man at a little "book swap" station around town. He told me that he had just placed some old text books written in German if I was interested. After I told him I was unable to read German he asked what I was putting into the swap. "Just some historical fiction dealing with WWII and the Holocaust if you're interested Again, just like with The Metronome...what a cover and what a story. This book is simply overwhelming. I enjoyed the notes at the end almost as much as the story. I once met a German man at a little "book swap" station around town. He told me that he had just placed some old text books written in German if I was interested. After I told him I was unable to read German he asked what I was putting into the swap. "Just some historical fiction dealing with WWII and the Holocaust if you're interested." I'll never forget his response. He said, "I grew up in Germany and I'm so sick of hearing about that stuff." D.R. Bell shares that this was a common response among Germans for several years after the war. This book is so good on many levels. I felt connection with Avi and David even though they were years apart. I enjoyed the history and learned a lot of new things. I had never heard of the Armenian Genocide until reading this. I didn't know about Wegner's photos but have looked them up, they are more haunting than Bell describes. I cannot even begin to imagine the amount of research that went into writing this book but it really pays off. This is one of the best books I've read in this genre. If you are into historical fiction along the lines of Steve Berry then read this book. The endnotes are just as fascinating as the story. I really cannot think of enough good things to say about this book. David's story really stuck with me. To D.R. Bell: thanks for the complimentary copy and keep up the excellent work.

    A must read book, more so, given the current turbulent times all over the world. The fine line we all walk against the backdrop of some of the most recent atrocities committed by mankind. Given the right circumstances, as Eleos shows, regular people in any country will justify their monstrous deeds. Hopefully, the more people will read and understand, they'll have a harder time following what's convenient instead of what is RIGHT.

    I have read most if not all of D.R. Bell's novels--loved all of them. I was so glad when I saw he came out with another one. I didn't realize it was about genocide and the Eichmann trials. This is historical fiction so not everything is exact. At the back of the book the author will clue you in to what really happened and the major players. It makes comparisons between the Armenian Genocide and the Holocaust and the human reactions of the survivors. It also mentions the Cambodian Genocide. If you I have read most if not all of D.R.

If you have ever met a Holocaust survivor, which I have, you will recognize the anger and guilt they carry with them. As I was reading this book 11 people were murdered in Pittsburgh Synagogue by, I guess you would call him, a white supremacist. The author also mentions that a lot of millennial's and younger do not even believe the Holocaust occurred-- I leave you with this thought--- Unless we remember--then history is bound to repeat itself.
