Er erzählt von Gewalt von oben und Gegenwehr von unten, vom Spannungsverhältnis zwischen Kollektiv und Individuum, zwischen Disziplin und Eigensinn - und zieht den Leser in die immer noch aktuellen Debatten mit hinein.
Geisslers Roman basiert auf einer wahren Geschichte: Das Vorbild für Leo conflict der Hamburger Polizist Bruno Meyer, der Anfang 1935 die Widerstandskämpfer Fiete Schulze und Etkar André aus dem Gefängnis befreien wollte. Detlef Grumbach recherchierte umfassend und erzählt in seinem Nachwort erstmals vom Schicksal Bruno Meyers.
