A dead body in Clärchen’s Ballroom
Berlin, Summer 1928. A dresser is found murdered in Bühler’s ballroom, a dance establishment on the Auguststraße, which is also known as Clärchen’s dance hall. Clärchen, the owner, is stunned. Was the murder specifically intended to harm her establishment?
Inspector Leo Wechsler’s case is further complicated by an unknown woman present at the crime scene, a series of unsolved sexual crimes in Frankfurt which show some similarities to the current case, and the sympathies of the victim’s Communist ex-lover. Wechsler and his colleagues pursue their investigation in a world shaped by the Charleston, champagne, and wild pleasure.
