Description

1936. Budapest. Zsigmond Gordon is a crime reporter cut from classic film noir cloth. Looking for answers after a recent murder, Gordon dives deep into the city’s dark underbelly—a shady world of pornographers, fixers, brothels, and powerful crime syndicates—and is led back to the highest echelons of power, where influencers are beginning to align themselves with Hitler. A politically charged tale of corruption and betrayal, this richly atmospheric murder mystery leaves us guessing until its surprising climax.
