For all appearances, Paul Ogorzow was a model German. An employed family man, party member, and sergeant in the infamous Brownshirts, he had worked his way up in the Berlin railroad from a manual laborer laying track to auxiliary signalman. But he also had a secret . . .

Due to Allied bombing raids, the Nazi high command instituted a total blackout throughout Berlin, including on commuter trains. Under cover of darkness and with a flock of helpless victims, Ogorzow escalated from simply frightening women to physically attacking them, eventually raping and murdering them, and even casually tossing their bodies off the moving trains. Though the Nazi party tried to censor news of the attacks, the women of Berlin soon lived in a state of constant fear.

It was up to Wilhelm L dtke, head of the Berlin police's serious crimes division, to hunt down the madman in their midst. For the first time, the gripping full story of Ogorzow's killing spree and L dtke's relentless pursuit is told in dramatic detail.
