Police Detective Pia Kirchhoff is about to leave on her long-delayed honeymoon when she receives a phone call. An elderly woman has been shot and killed while walking her dog. A short while later, another murder is committed and the modus operandi is eerily similar - a woman is killed by a bullet that smashes through her kitchen window … and in both cases, the same weapon fired the shot.
Two more murders follow in short order. None of the victims had enemies and no one knows why they were singled out. As fear of the Taunus Sniper grows, Detective Kirchhoff and her partner, Oliver von Bodenstein, search for the suspect.
