Sarajevo is a dying city: violence and possible death from shell fire or a sniper's bullet lurk around every corner. People are hungry a lot of the time, cold most of the time, and frightened all of the time. An arrogant American journalist, Branson Flett, records it all.
Amid the chaos, Police Superintendent Rosso and his ragtag force must solve a murder - one of their informants, a young woman, has been found dead in "The Monkey House," a Serbian apartment complex. The crime bears the unmistakable marks of being tied to the powerful Bosnian warlord and black marketer Luka - a man whom Rosso is determined to bring to justice. And he needs Flett's help to do so. For Rosso, a Croat whose Serbian wife is sinking ever more deeply into alcoholism and despair and whose Muslim goddaughter may be having an affair with Luka, this case has become a mission, but also to save his family and his city. And in the process, perhaps he may be able to redeem his own dark and bloody legacy.
