For 15-year-old Michael Berg, a chance meeting with an older woman leads to far more than he ever imagined. The woman in question is Hanna and before long, they embark on a passionate, clandestine love affair which leaves Michael both euphoric and confused. For Hanna is not all that she seems. Years later, as a law student observing a trial in Germany, Michael is shocked to realise that the person on the dock is Hanna. The woman he has loved is a criminal. Much about her behaviour during the trial does not make sense. But then suddenly and terribly, it does – Hanna is not only obliged to answer for a horrible crime, she is also desperately concealing an even deeper secret.
