Crammed into cellars, camping among the ruins, its half-starved population must hustle on the black market to survive. Crime is endemic, ensnaring even the youngest in its net. Now gangs of orphaned boys roam the city, robbed of their innocence by Nazism, brutalised by war. They live by theft, by dealing in drugs and contraband. They glory in violence." -- from the front fold over blurb. Even in this violent city a crime is committed that shocks the investigating officer. All is not as it seems. This is the first UK edition.
