Naked Man Burning

At the age of fourteen, a boy flees from the southern German village of Heiligsheim. Forty years later, he returns under the name of Ludwig »Luggi« Dragomir. The tough times he has had to live through since leaving his native village are not enough to prevent the constant reliving of something even more sinister: the abuse perpetrated on him and his childhood friends by some of the most influential people of Heiligsheim.

Beton Rouge

Chastity Riley is chasing a madman. Or at least that’s what it seems like. Because who else would lock high-ranking executives in a cage in the middle of Hamburg? And so Chastity experiences one of the rare occasions where her bosses stop trying to rein her in and confine her to the tediousness that is her desk. Her investigations take her into the world of publishing and the institutions that form elites. And all the while her friends are driving her crazy, because of all people it’s those that usually give her support who suddenly prove to be a fickle bunch.

Blue Night

»Just for the record: This is an extremely strange night. And strange nights are always a harbinger.«   Due to an unfortunate incident where she convicted a superior of corruption and shot a gangster all at once, district attorney Chastity Riley has been transferred to victim protection and thus – officially been put in the backwater. Her private life doesn’t offer any consolation either: her formerly favourite colleague sets out, what with his midlife crisis and all, on his own personal vendetta, while her most faithful ally in the police department descends into the depths of his broken heart.

Never

Police officer Jenny Aaron, blinded during a failed mission in Barcelona years ago, has escaped death only barely after the worst thirty-six hours of her life and is looking for shelter with her father’s friend in Sweden. Aaron doesn’t know which way to go: She has the standing offer to re-join the Department, the secret elite unit she used to belong to before she lost her eye-sight. But at what cost? She clings to the hope of regaining her sight – without knowing whether that will remain nothing but a dream. Then Aaron receives a message that shatters all her dreams for the future: Her mortal enemy has left her an enormous fortune – behind which a gruesome secret is hiding. In order to be completely certain, she needs to go to Marrakech. And that’s where all hell breaks loose...
