Hermann Kappes 13. Fall Ein Jahr nach der Machtübernahme der Nationalsozialisten kämpfen SA, SS und Gestapo um die Vorherrschaft im Deutschen Reich. Im Juni 1934, wenige Wochen vor Röhm-Putsch, kommt es bei Bauarbeiten am S-Bahn des Stettiner Bahnhofs zu einer furchtbaren Explosion, die mehrere Arbeiter tötet. Sofort wird der einer Landfahrerfamilie entstammende, „nicht-arische“ Zimmermann Leiblein des Mordes beschuldigt und festgenommen. Kommissar Kappe glaubt schon bald an die Unschuld des Mannes. Doch seine Ermittlungen gestalten sich schwierig, denn auch im Polzeipräsidium am Alexanderplatz haben nationalsozialistische Kräfte längst das Ruder an sich zu reißen begonnen. Er ahnt, dass SA und SS eine wesentliche Rolle bei dem vermeintlichen Unfall spielten ... Es geschah in Berlin, der große Kettenroman um Kommissar Hermann Kappe, spiegelt in fiktiven Kriminalfällen das Berlin des 20. Jahrhunderts wider. Klaus Vater, ehemaliger stellvertretender Regierungssprecher und Sprecher des Bundesgesundheitsministeriums, führt den Leser in Band dreizehn mitten hinein in jene furchtbare Epoche, in der sich die Grenze zwischen Recht und Unrecht zunehmend verwischte.
