Berlin, 1927: during a fashion show at the Café Romanesque, it emerges that two of the models’ outfits have been tampered with—impregnated with a contact poison in what appears to be a deliberate assault on the Morgenstern & Fink fashion house.

Leo Wechsler, now Chief Commissioner with the Berlin CID, is entrusted with the investigation.
