While covering her usual crime beat, newspaper reporter Hannah Vogel unexpectedly spots a photo of her brother Ernst in the Alexanderplatz Police Station on a wall displaying pictures of the unclaimed dead. Ernst had been living a high-profile life as a gay man, performing in a cabaret and exposing himself to danger by associating with known Nazis. Though barely getting by in a time when money and resources are scarce, Hannah risks it all by launching a solo investigation to find her brother's murderer.

While some of the plotting is a little loose (at one point the heroine is spirited away from the clutches of the SA in an expensive and presumably unique automobile, the story is gripping and the characters engaging. Pre-war Berlin comes to life.

Really interesting story about the rise of Nazi Germany. Couldn't put it down.

An excellent read. A gritty and fascinating account of life in Berlin as the Nazis rise to power.
