Like a shadow in the night

During the dark fall evenings of 1956, woman after woman is brutally raped in Dresden.

The man, disfigured by scars, admits to the rapes, but denies the murder. Are the Russian military deserters whom everyone despises perhaps guilty after all? The situation escalates when Heller’s 13-year-old foster daughter Anni disappears without a trace after an argument. A feverish search begins, and the murderer still hasn’t been captured...
