Berlin, 1945, American Sector. Ben, 15, aspiring black marketeer, finds the body of a young, blonde, German woman on the line at Uncle Tom's Cabin subway station. She has been sexually abused and strangled with a chain. Inspector Dietrich is quickly brought in, along with his American counterpart in the Military Police, John Ashburner. But as the two detectives set about solving this brutal murder it becomes clear that the case is not isolated, when the bodies of young women are discovered in the French and Russian Sectors of the city. Whilst detectives struggle to understand what links these terrible murders - apart from a shadowy motorcyclist who always seems to be near-at-hand at the time the murders are committed - Berlin itself battles to recover itself from the ashes of the newly lost War that tore the City apart. Witty, daring and subtle, this gripping whodunit will leave the reader gasping.
