From the Editor

In the war-torn ruins of Dresden, detective Max Heller’s moral code is the one thing that hasn’t crumbled. As World War II rages on, Heller is unmoved by politics and remains dedicated to honest police work, committed to serve and protect, even as bombs are falling overhead. His mission is to stop the Fright Man, a brutal killer lurking around the wreckage, before he can inflict further damage.

Resources are constrained and local officials want police efforts focused on the war, but Heller refuses to be reassigned to trench digging when his city needs him. Determining his motive is as compelling as determining the killer’s: Why would Heller insist on investigating a few murder cases when soldiers and civilians are dying in vast numbers? In this gripping page-turner, Heller does not align himself with vague notions of good and evil—his definition of right and wrong was clearly established in the police academy, where he learned to detect evidence and prove a hypothesis before acting on it. This type of reason is generally lost in the ruckus of battle and the zealotry of nationalism, but Heller is uncompromising in his commitment to his neighbors and his belief in justice.

Reading The Air Raid Killer may keep you up more nights than most mysteries, breathless from the explosions and in awe of Heller’s conviction.
