Amidst the chaos of World War II…
In a land of brutality and bloodshed…
One death can still change everything.
 
In war-torn Yugoslavia, a beautiful young filmmaker and photographer--a veritable hero to her people--and a German officer have been brutally murdered.
 
Assigned to the case is military intelligence officer Captain Gregor Reinhardt. Already haunted by his wartime actions and the mistakes he's made off the battlefield, he soon finds that his investigation may be more than just a murder--and that the late Yugoslavian heroine may have been much more brilliant--and treacherous--than anyone knew.
 
Maneuvering his way through a minefield of political, military, and personal agendas and vendettas, Reinhardt knows that someone is leaving a trail of dead bodies to cover their tracks. But those bloody tracks may lead Reinhardt to a secret hidden within the ranks of the powerful that they will do anything to keep.
 
And his search for the truth may kill him before he ever finds it.

This was a very satisfying read. McCallin skillfully weaves an intricate plot and conveys great characterizations of the time, place and people. It was strange finding a Nazi officer in WWII a sympathetic character, but the writing and plotting are first class.
Surprising and intriguing throughout.

Intricate Balkan politics and sensibilities are well explained in this detective novel with World War II as the stage.

An excellent read. I appreciated the notes the author included about the historical activities of the time (2nd WW).
The main character, Reinhardt, is similar to Bernie Gunther who features in several novels by Philip Kerr.
