Henri Lefort is a detective in Nazi-occupied Paris, and his success is a double-edged sword. He is one of the few remaining police officers, and must solve cases for the Germans in order to keep the peace for the French.
When Dr. Andreas von Rauch requests his help in finding a missing colleague, Dr. Viktor Brandt, Henri is unable to refuse. However, his friend Princess Marie Bonaparte wants him to investigate the kidnappings of young children from a local home.

On top of this, he must still solve routine police cases, such as the beating death of Edouard Grabbin. Nicola Prehn, Henri’s sister and administrative assistant at the prefecture, encourages him to focus on Princess Mimi’s case.
Henri must find a way to balance the demands of his job with the difficulties of living in an occupied city, where even the most basic necessities are hard to come by. Pryor paints a vivid picture of life in wartime Paris, where the fight for good must never be abandoned, even if it requires compromise.
