Several murders take place in Berlin in 1918. It looked
as though a serial killer committed the murders. Each woman had a
similar design carved into her back. Detective Inspector Hoffner is
in charge of the investigation. The clues did not seem to amount to
much or point to anyone.
However, when another victim is
found, Inspector Hoffner realizes something is different. The
body is that of Rosa Luxemburg a socialist revolutionary. The
mark on her back does not match that of the other victims. Did
someone else murder Rosa and make it look like the serial killer did it?
Hoffner becomes very involved, almost to the
point of being obsessed with Rosa and her killer. Is Hoffner
successful at finding Rosa's killer?
Jonathan Rabb has done
an excellent job of combining the history of post World War I
Germany with fiction. He does an outstanding job in creating
his characters to the point where they seem real. This is a
must read book for anyone who loves history blended with a great
story. Jonathan Rabb shows the reader that he is a skilled
writer. This is an entertaining police procedural book.
