The year is 1964, and it's a week before Hitler's 75th birthday. Nazi Germany won the Second World War, Churchill is living in exile in Canada, Joseph Kennedy is President of the United States, and King Edward and Queen Wallis are puppet monarchs of the United Kingdom. In this dimension, history took a very different turn in 1942 to the one we are familiar with.
Berlin detective Xavier March is called in to investigate the suspicious death of a retired German senior civil servant. His enquiries lead him to inadvertently uncover a terrifying secret that has so far been hidden from the world, a secret so shocking that it must never be revealed.
