In the aftermath of the war to end all wars, the triumphant Allies prosper and grow, the vanquished Germand seethe with resentment, and Hitler returns to political life. By the late twenties, nursing nationalistic pride along with fury, the Nazis are back. Homicide detective Axel Berg has always considered himself apolitical. But that changes when he's called to the scene of a grisly crime. The body of Anna Gross, a young society wife, had been dumped in the tangled brush of the English Garden, still clothed in finery. Did she die at the hands of a lover? Was she slain by a jealous husband? Or could her death be part of an occult, right-wing conspiracy? A second body is discovered, also that of a woman of means. When a third body is found, Berg realizes he's dealing with unprecedented evil. Is this murderer politically motivated? Is he a lone lunatic who slays to satisfy his bloodthirsty fantasies? Or worse, is the killer possessed by both political and personal demons? Berg finds himself entangled in a web of dangerous intrigue. All around him are potential enemies: his opinionated colleagues, his violent supervisor, and the top brass. In Munich, a city in disarray, overrun by discordant political factions, and with Hitler's power once again on the rise, a dedicated policeman can never know who is trustworthy, who is evil, and who is simply insane. And one simple mistake can be deadly.
