Rehearsals are underway for the Bavarian State Ballet’s politicised N;utcracker, with Miti as Klara when the one of the dancers dies suddenly at a company party, throwing the company into turmoil.

The impassive Sturmbannführer Wiener is brought in to investigate – eager for promotion. But he can’t see what Miti, with her stage-side view, sees – a company rife with jealousies and intrigues, in the iron grip of the charismatic but cruel Herr Direktor.

As always, Miti invites Ludwig, Karl and Gustav into her clandestine investigations. But in the wake of the new Nuremberg Laws, there are secrets the boys are keeping from her…

Join the friends for another Wildfire mystery as the world around them – and us – darkens.
