Crown Prince is dead. Was it a suicide or a murder? Who killed the Prince? Victor Moritz investigates. With his daughter Emily, he follows the tangled paths of guilt leading in several directions at once. More often than not, it is easier to explain Death than to solve Life. What if the hand that pulled the trigger and the head that willed it to do so don’t belong to the same body, dead or alive?
