Sinopsis: Munich in 1933, the year of Hitler's rise to power, saw a last-ditch fight by German democracy and the beginning of the Nazi attempt to destroy the soul of mankind. In the front line were the German Expressionist painters, who painted from the soul and were therefore declared 'degenerate'. Against this background, the novel traces the journey of Gerhard Glaser, art lover and lawyer. Glaser was Public Prosecutor in the case of Geli Raubal, Hitler's niece and, Glaser believes, his first murder victim. Haunted by his failure in the Raubal case, Glaser tries to find Hitler's drawings of Geli and solve the murder of the Jewish art dealer who had them, in an attempt to bring Hitler to account within the law. But matters will not stop there ... A thought-provoking novel about German resistance to Hitler in the 1930s which will appeal to a wide range of readers. Michael Dean, a highly experienced author of non-fiction and screenplays, approaches a disturbing period with skill and sensitivity.
History does not always remember the heroesheroes, but this novel does - I recommend that every student of history read it. --John B. Willett, Charles William Eliot Professor, Harvard University
Forget Dan Brown. This is real art history, real conspiracy, and really relevant. The author's writing is up to the task, as is his knowledge of Germany. Glaser is a great figure, for whom one feels enormous empathy. --Alan Posener, Korrespondent für Politik und Gesellschaft, Welt am Sonntag, Berlin
... convincing, absorbing and revealing. --Katherine Taylor, Munich Found
