The story of the investigation to unravel the mysterious death of a beautiful young woman in Nazi-occupied Warsaw. She is not Krystyna Holzer, as stated in her kennkarte (German-issued identity document), but a Jewess kept hidden by a Pole - a polonized Saxon - attorney Karol Karlzer. Before the outbreak of war, the woman was his student as well as the object of his unrequited love. The case is assigned to Detective Chief Inspector Rafal Król, an officer of the so- -called Blue Police under the control of the German occupiers, but also a soldier of the Polish underground, sworn to execute his orders. It is a suspenseful story set in the faithfully-recreated reality of occupied Warsaw and Zakopane.
