The New York Times bestselling "master of mystery" (Cleveland Plain Dealer), Faye Kellerman delivers a riveting novel set in 1920s Munich, a war-wounded city rocked by political agitation and stalked by a nameless, barbaric butcher.
Lustmord - the joy of murder. The terrifying concept seems apt for the brutal slaying of a beautiful young society wife dumped in the vast English Garden. Homicide inspector Axel Berg is horrified by the crime...and disturbed by the artful arrangement of the victim's clothes and hair - a madman's portrait of death.
Berg's superiors demand quick answers and a quick arrest: a vagrant, the woman's husband, anyone who can be demonized will do. When a second body is discovered, the city erupts into panic, the unrest fomented by the wild-eyed, hate-mongering Austrian Adolf Hitler and his Brownshirt party of young thugs.
Berg can trust no one as he relentlessly hunts a ruthless killer, dodging faceless enemies and back-alley intrigue, struggling to bring a fiend to justice before the country - and his life - veer straight into darkness.

FAYE KELLERMAN is the author of the bestselling Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus novels, as well as a thriller, Moon Music, and a historical novel, The Quality of Mercy. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Jonathan Kellerman, and their children.From AudioFile:
Faye Kellerman has reached beyond her Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus mysteries to create an intricate historical mystery set in 1929. Axel Berg, a Munich police inspector, doggedly seeks justice amidst the anarchy and passions stirred by Hitler's Brown Shirts. Although he is directed to blame recent murders on the Jews, Berg--a complex, flawed protagonist--doggedly pursues the real murderer, placing his job and his family at risk. Kellerman, no stranger to religious themes, provides a moral lesson within her story, particularly in the novel's coda. Paul Michael, who excels in European accents, does an outstanding job carrying both the plot's momentum and the protagonist's psychological burden.
