In 1920s Munich, the body of Anna Gross, a young society wife, has been found in the English Gardens, still clothed in finery. Soon a second body is discovered, also a woman of high society. When a third body is found, homicide detective Axel Berg realizes he’s dealing with unprecedented evil. Is the murderer politically motivated? Is he a lone madman? Or worse, is the killer possessed by both political and personal demons? Detective Berg soon finds himself entangled in a web of dangerous intrigue, surrounded by potential enemies. As Munich slips further into turmoil, overrun by political factions and the rise of Hitler, a dedicated policeman can never know who to trust--and one simple mistake could be deadly.

About the Author:

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.
