Berlin, 1928, the dying days of the Weimar Republic before Hitler and the Nazis came to power.
It was a period of decadence and excess in Berlin. For Thomas, the city of cabaret clubs and neon skylines was nothing less than mesmerising.
Yet his outlook is turned upside down when he witnesses a shocking murder. What is worse, he has to decide if his best friend is capable of being the killer.
After the terrible event, he becomes the entangled in a web of mystery and deceit. As a cat-and-mouse game between the two friends ensues, the story delves into the beating heart of 1920s Berlin, where politics and personal ambition reveal the darker anxieties of the modern metropolis. Thomas has to decide whether to speak out and betray his friend, or to stay quiet and risk betraying himself.
And at the centre, a painting by the rising-star of the Berlin art scene, a work of art that may yet prove vital in piecing together the jigsaw of what really happened that fateful day.
