They want to leave the coroners verdict of accidental death untouched and to have the mans burial hastened. Only the head of the Munich CID, DCS Frank Kruger and his serious crimes squad, think differently. The circumstances surrounding the death point to murder. But their hands are tied. Kruger, though, not one to give up easily or be deterred by officialdom and politics, begins an unofficial investigation to clear up the inconsistencies. But soon he finds himself drawn into a quagmire of murder, fraud, extortion and in-fighting among the powerful contenders for a share of the spoils in the plot – which began with the Maddens murder – as he attempts to unravel a web of deceit and deception while walking a political tightrope to bring the white-collar perpetrators, who believe they are above the law, to justice.
