The Boy in the Suitcase by Lene Kaaberbøl

Nina Borg, a Red Cross nurse, wife, and mother of two, is a compulsive do-gooder who can't say no when someone asks for help—even when she knows better. When her estranged friend Karin leaves her a key to a public locker in the Copenhagen train station, Nina gets suckered into her most dangerous project yet. Inside the locker is a suitcase, and inside the suitcase is a three-year-old boy: naked and drugged, but alive.
Is the boy a victim of child trafficking? Can he be turned over to authorities, or will they only return him to whoever sold him? When Karin is discovered brutally murdered, Nina realizes that her life and the boy's are in jeopardy, too. In an increasingly desperate trek across Denmark, Nina tries to figure out who the boy is, where he belongs, and who exactly is trying to hunt him down.

    The Devil's Chicken is truly devilish. Lassi and Greek Yogurt do even make it edible. Jenny, Maria, and I tried it and its not worth free beer for a week. I'll be in contact with Jenny for planing our outing in SF on the trail of Sam Spade.

    Can't wait to see all the members of the best book club ever.
    If you're still looking for a location, I might suggest the back room at Red Hot Chili Pepper in San Carlos.

    Can't wait. Where are we meeting. Just read a great book: "American Wife" by Curtis Sittenfeld. Based on the relationship of George W. and Laura Bush. Who knew that would be compelling?

    Short on cash presently so may have to pass on this book; already invested on last book not discussed, and bought the other book. I get them thru iTunes with apple store so I can read easier in larger type. Thanks for suggestion though.

    Hi Sandra - I couldn't find the book at Barnes and Noble, so I ordered it online via Amazon. They have them.
