Shadows in Friedrichstadt

Fiction, Thriller / Crime

An investigative journalist falls to his death – or was he pushed?

November 1928: the journalist Moritz Graf plunges off the roof of his publishing house. Could this perhaps have been suicide, not an accident? Or was he possibly pushed? There were no witnesses. Graf had apparently been working on an explosive story that nobody seems to know anything about. During the course of his investigation, Inspector Leo Wechsler meets the equally charming and unscrupulous Clemens Marold, chief editor of the Berliner Nachrichten newspaper. The man seems to be everywhere at once and to know every corner of Berlin… Leo soon realizes that he has made an influential enemy.
