Max Heller’s third case
Dresden 1948: a hot summer, three years after the end of the war. The great currency reform throws occupied and divided post-war Germany into a crisis. In the midst of the arduous reconstruction work, Detective inspector Max Heller finds himself entangled in a case involving a fourteen-year-old boy, whose cause of death is anything but clear. Was it an accident, murder, or even possibly suicide?
While investigating this case, Heller runs up against a wall of silence, and is confronted by his worst personal nightmare, one he thought he had forgotten long before.
