'April 1945 - the last act of the war, the Allied stranglehold on Berlin is tightening by the day, as the escape corridor to the Bavarian Alps and the Swiss border is narrowing. In the maze of ruins that Berlin has become, a man of appalling ingenuity, with a ruthless sense of self-preservation, contrives his escape. he is the secret policeman Ernst Scholler. In his shabby shiny suit with its sagging pockets, he is not immediately recognisable as someone of importance, but as the Reich Special Investigator he has long been checking up on the highest in the land, and there is nothing he doesn't know about."
