Gereon Rath is on the case, but struggles to find clues. No one seems interested in solving the murder of a penniless veteran.

Meanwhile, Rath's fiancee Charly has been assigned the case of fifteen-year-old Hannah Singer. Hannah killed her father and six others by starting a house fire but has now been declared mentally unfit to stand trial.

When a connection is discovered between Hannah and the dead ex-soldier, the two cases overlap.

It's up to Rath and Charlotte to find justice for the dead man, and for Hannah even as the Nazis continue their rise to power and the Reichstag burns.

The new Germany is a frightening place, but policework must go on even through book-burning and marching, paranoia and fear.
