In 1970s East Berlin, Karin Müller works for the People's Police, solving crimes in the shadow of the Wall. Trying not to run afoul of the communist bureaucracy and the Stasi—the State's ruthless yet effective security force—Müller will find that her job is nearly impossible, and in these tense Cold War thrillers, the stakes could not be higher.
A man's body is found buried in concrete at a Dresden building site, and when People's Police homicide captain Karin Müller arrives at the scene, she discovers that all of the body's identifiable features have been removed. She soon realizes that this crime is part of a battle between two secret services—the Stasi of East Germany and Britain's MI6—to control the truth behind one of the deadliest events of World War II. In this sixth investigation (after Stasi Winter), Müller looks for answers, and finds that the Stasi wants the case to be closed.
