What drives a sane person to murder?
Prosecutor Teodor Szacki is about to find out.
What’s it about?
When bones are discovered in a bunker in Olsztyn, everyone assumes they’re relics from the German occupation of Poland, but it soon transpires that the bones are actually fresh, and that their chemical removal began when their owner was still alive…
Prosecutor Szacki quickly realises the dead man’s wife is hiding something, but it seems the investigation is stalling, until another victim is discovered, horribly mutilated. Could someone be targeting domestic abusers?
Famously straight-laced, Szacki has no sympathy with vigilantes, but when his own family is threatened he begins to understand how one can be driven beyond one’s principles into pure rage…
Who’s it by?
