Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a young man, Gerhard Self served as a Nazi prosecutor. After the war he was barred from the judicial system and so became a private investigator. He has never, however, forgotten his complicity in evil.

Hired by a childhood friend, the aging Self searches for a prankish hacker whos invaded the computer system of a Rhineland chemical plant. But his investigation leads to murder, and from there to the charnel house of Germanys past, where the secrets of powerful corporations lie among the bones of numberless dead. What ensues is a taut, psychologically complex, and densely atmospheric moral thriller featuring a shrewd, self-mocking protagonist.

Synopsis:

When private detective Gerhard Self's chum asks Self to investigate some strange alterations to computer files, it looks to be a relatively routine case, save for the coincidental car-crash death of the suspected culprit.
