In 1920s Munich, homicide detective Axel Berg is called to the scene of a grisly murder, the victim being a young and pretty society wife. Soon, a second body is uncovered; the discovery of a third indicates that Berg is dealing with a killer who has no fear being caught. In the Germany of the time, no investigation on this scale can be straightforward. Adolph Hitler's power is growing, and the Nazis are a strong civic force in the city of Munich. Berg has always considered himself apolitical, and as an outsider living a routine life he's been of no interest to those with power. But this high-profile case changes all that, as senior officers work to their own agendas, while one theory is that the killings themselves are part of a fascist conspiracy. Berg is alone as never before, with the imminent threat at all times of making a mistake with deadly consequences.

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.
