Summary (From the publisher):

In the final months of World War Two, a group of unlikely people come together in the bombarded city of Vienna, drawn by their shared distrust of the oppressive Nazi regime. There is the independent-minded outspoken former socialist Franz Prannowitz, a decorated Luftwaffe pilot, convinced of imminent German defeat. There is the naive young Red-Cross worker Poldi, forced to question her blind faith in the Reich as the world she has trusted in, crumbles around her. Then there is the conscience-stricken officer Wohlleben with a brother in the SS, a silent witness to the injustices of the Nazi regime.

Separated in pre-war times by irreconcilable class and political differences, their shared opposition to the now crumbling Nazi dictatorship leads them and those around them into new relationships based on tolerance and a belief in a shared humanity. In the final danger-filled months of Nazi government, they seek to find a way to collaborate for the good of the new Austria, which they are convinced will emerge with the collapse of Hitler's Reich.
