The main historical event that ends this story is the murder of the Ceausescus during the Romanian revolution/uprising. A very complicated story with militias, covert operations, security police at times I was lost. But on balance this is a very intense murder investigation by Comrade Chief Brod. He is extremely sympathetic. By the end of the story, I felt I'd had a very good lesson in the workings of a communist bureaucracy.
