The dead menís identities are not known, but they are thought to be from somewhere in Eastern Europeótscuschen is the highly derogatory word that is used. An autopsy on one reveals a small tattoo that suggests membership in a Croatian paramilitary gang. The day after the discovery, the family who had called the Gendarmerie dies in a house fire. Felix is drawn further into this murder, and now arson, investigation . . . whoever set fire to the farmhouse may want Felix next . . .
