The first book in the bestselling German crime series, now available on Netflix Australia

A GEREON RATH MYSTERY

'Political maelstrom, a populist right on the march -- sound familiar? . . . It's fabulous debauchery and naughtiness, a political maelstrom and a ticking timebomb.' The Guardian

1929: When a car is hauled out of the Landwehr Canal with a mutilated corpse inside, Detective Inspector Gereon Rath claims the case. Soon his inquiries drag him ever deeper into the morass of Weimar Berlin's 'Roaring Twenties' underworld of cocaine, prostitution, gunrunning and shady politics.

Now a major international television series

'Unrelenting in tension until an explosive climax; as well as delivering the thrills Kutscher captures perfectly in dark tones the menacing atmosphere and lurking threats of a unique -- and pivotal -- time and place in history.'
Craig Russell, author of the Jan Fabel series

'Twenties Germany in all its seedy splendour: impressive.'
Sarah Ward, author of In Bitter Chill

'Gripping, skilfully plotted and rich in historical detail.'
Mrs Peabody Investigates

'Evocative thriller set in Berlin's seedy underworld during
the Roaring Twenties.'
Mail on Sunday
