Sometimes, it takes a mass murderer to catch a serial killer . . .

London. 1939. Down these mean streets a man must go who is... very much mean. Once he was somebody, in Germany, before the Fall. But in this world the Nazis never came to power; and the man who now calls himself Wolf ekes out a miserable living as a private detective in Soho.

Enter Isabella Rubinstein: beautiful, glamorous - and Jewish. Her sister's gone missing and Wolf, despite his hatred of her race, takes on the case.

The search takes Wolf across a city in the grip of the rise of a very British Fascism, and deep into a web of betrayal, deceit and murder. For a serial killer is now stalking Wolf, intent on reminding him of his former glory, and all that could have been.

The only question is, can Wolf stay alive long enough to find answers?
