Summary (From the publisher):

Forced into the SS in 1941, a Berlin factory owner is sent to infiltrate the mountains where a battle rages over an element vital to Hitler's blitzkrieg. Fifty years later the investigation of a murder of a teenage girl in Lisbon takes Inspector Z Coelho back across a bloody swath of history to the scene of an older crime buried among the bones of a fascist past, and to a chilling motive buried even deeper.
