Publisher's Summary

As the Third Reich ends, a killer’s game begins.

In the final days of the Third Reich, with the historic city of Dresden on the brink of destruction, terrifying rumors spread about the Fright Man, a demonic killer who exploited the cover of a nighttime air raid siren to mutilate and kill a young nurse. Just as seasoned detective Max Heller begins investigating, the Fright Man kills again...

The investigation seems hopeless. Desperate refugees flood the streets, all of Heller’s resources are depleted, and his new boss is a ruthless SS officer. And like so many others, Heller and his wife, Karin, survive on meager rations while fearing for the lives of their sons at the front. But as tensions mount and enemy firebombs decimate the city, dangerous new clues come to light - and the determined Heller pursues a violent and twisting path to unmask a monster.

Don't Waste Your Time~

Maybe reading this book would have been better, but listening to it was awful. I should have returned it. The narrator is just awful, using so many voices for characters that just sound ridiculous. It was very hard to concentrate on the book details itself. The story was jumping all over the place and hard to follow. I was just happy when it was finished and sorry I wasted the 8 hours listening to it.

I lasted 10 minutes

As soon as the American narrator put on a New York/New Jersey accent to give voice to the German characters I got out.... I got out fast!
I gave the story a neutral 3 stars because I didn’t.... couldn’t last the course with such terrible narration.
