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.

“The personal service I received was superior. No query or problem was left unanswered or unattended.”
