In the late 1920s the Nazis are creeping into positions of authority and Munich's police department is no exception. Inspektor Axel Berg of the Mordkommission - Munich's newly formed homicide squad - deals mostly with routine deaths but when he's called to investigate the grisly murder of a young society wife, he is immediately thrown into a web of dangerous intrigue. Suddenly, senior colleagues have an unprecedented interest in his work, and there are rumours that the death might be linked to a political conspiracy. Then two more corpses are discovered and Berg questions whether he's searching for a lone lunatic or a calculating assassin with a more sinister agenda. With few to trust, Berg has to judge who's more dangerous: the killer who hunts in the darkness, or the faceless enemy that could be anyone.Hide synopsis

...is set in the mid to late 20s. Hitler is gaining power in Germany and, in Munich, women are being murdered.
One detective makes it his mission to put together the pieces of the puzzle and find the murderer without taking the 'easy way out.' In doing so he gets too close to the answer and finds the lives of his family, and particularly his own, in grave danger.
Power, greed, racism, fear, history and danger all play a large part in this novel. It's a great read I highly recommend.
