On the eve of World War II, a murder in New York City draws two vastly different men, an American detective and a German intelligence officer, into the gathering storm.
One of hundreds of simple homicides each year, indistinguishable from any other in 1938, was the death of a spinster nurse killed in her apartment. A suspect is caught and convicted. Private Investigator Fintan Dunne is lured into the case and coerced by conscience into unraveling the setup that has put an innocent man on death row. Following the trail leads him into a murder conspiracy of a scope that defies imagination.
Meanwhile, in Germany, with no limits to Hitler's mania, Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, head of military intelligence, knows that the "hour of the cat" looms when every German must make a choice.
"Quinn's novel is as much a rebuke of the systematized violence of war as it is straight-up spy thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
