Even thousands of miles from the front lines, locked in a Canadian prisoner-of-war camp, death isn’t far away.
When Chef Schlipal is found dead, Sergeant August Neumann, head of Camp Civil Security and decorated German war hero, must find out what would drive the men of the camp, brothers-in-arms, to turn on each other. He’s learned, of course, that beneath the veneer of duty and honour, the camp is anything but civil.
When the trail of clues ends at the edge of the prison yard, Neumann must consider a crime bigger than the camp. Is someone getting out of the prison? If so, can he follow? If he can’t, he might have to live with the dishonour of Camp 133.
