“A thrilling hunt…gripping and gruesome.” —James Becker, bestselling author of The Lost Testament
In the winter of 1945, seven months after the Nazi defeat, Munich is in ruins. Mason Collins—former Chicago police detective, U.S. soldier, and prisoner-of-war—is now Chief Warrant Officer of the American Zone of Occupation.

Relying on his wit and instincts, Mason must venture into dangerous places that put his own life at risk: from interrogation rooms with unrepentant Nazi war criminals to penetrating the U.S. Army’s own black market.
But what Mason doesn’t know is that the killer he’s chasing is stalking him as well…
