Critique of Criminal Reason
At the dawn of the Enlightenment, as the pursuit of criminal justice is evolving into a science, young Prussian magistrate Hanno Stiffeniis is confronted by a case of extraordinary evil.
The great philosopher Kant is an uncommon mentor to Stiffeniis as he investigates a spate of murders that have reduced the Prussian city of Königsberg to a state of terror. Four people already are dead, and there is no sign of an end to the killing spree. Tension inside the city is heightened by the imminent threat of invasion from Napoleon, whose army menaces the borders of Prussia. And when the killer then tries to murder Stiffeniis himself, the magistrate is confronted by demons from his own past, a clue to the source of the murders that he can no longer ignore.
