When an unexpected house call leads Dr. Beer toSpeckstein’s apartment, he finds himself in the bedroom of Zuzka, theprofessor’s niece. Wide-eyed, flirtatious, and not detectably ill, Zuzka leadsthe young doctor to her window and opens up a view of their apartment blockthat Beer has never known. Across the shared courtyard there is nine-year-oldAnneliese, the lonely daughter of an alcoholic. Five windows to the left livesa secretive mime who comes home late at night and keeps something—or someone—precioushidden from view.

Doesone of these enigmatic neighbors have blood on their hands?
