The trial was over. The men sentenced to hang in the gray stone prison the following day shivered in their whitewashed cells.U.S. Army Lt. John Hurtree shook the rain from his hat and checked in with the Office of the Provost Marshal. He removed his long brown trench coat and laid it on the table. The Corporal frisked Hurtree’s wiry body. The box under his arm was next. The guard logged the contents into the journal, ‘Photographs’, beside Hurtree’s name and rank.

World War II has been over for more than a year. In Nuremberg, the day before he is to be executed, a Nazi war criminal calls U.S. Army Lt. John Hurtree to his prison cell and tries to negotiate with information about the identity of a child in a photograph. Hurtree refuses the bargain, but the question of the child plagues his life even after retirement.

Stockholm, Sweden, 1996. A police investigation into the mysterious death of a doctor and his nurse brings Hurtree to Sweden. Police Commissioner Sara Markham and Hurtree work together to solve the puzzle of the murders. At the same time, they uncover the astonishing secret identity of an elderly woman living in southern Stockholm, and race to save her life.
