Summary (From the publisher):

During a sweltering heat wave in the summer of 1938, the German people anxiously await the outcome of the Munich Conference, wondering if the Fuhrer will plunge Europe into another war. Meanwhile private investigator Bernhard Gunther is hired by a rich widow in order to find out who has been blackmailing her, as well as by the Berlin criminal police to track down a serial killer. Temporarily promoted to the rank of Kommissar, Gunther sets out to solve the dual mysteries amid the tensions of prewar Berlin, where he encounters the sinister side of German medicine and psychotherapy as well as the occult nature of Nazism.
