Summary

Summary

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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Veteran narrator Lee provides the large cast of characters with an apparently endless variety of German and Serbo-Croatian speech patterns, all dramatically animated. But he takes special care to enrich Reinhardt's accented speech with an initial disinterested weariness that eventually hardens into a resolve that justice must be served. Publishers Weekly Audio Review
“An extraordinarily nuanced and compelling narrative.” New York Journal of Books
“Set in 1943 Sarajevo, McCallin’s well-wrought debut…highlights the complexities of trying to be an honest cop under a vicious, corrupt regime…intelligent diversion for WWII crime fans.” Publishers Weekly
“Lee comfortably jumps from German to Russian to Serbian accents and adds an overall tone that could best be described as ‘Nazi noir.’" AudioFile
