From the Editor

I have always been drawn to characters who don’t know when to give up. Nik Pohl is exactly that—a detective who will stop at nothing to catch a killer, even when that killer is trying to catch him too.

Darkness seeps through the pages of this gritty, thrilling mystery, and in this unflinching first entry in the series, Hartung introduces a protagonist to rival Jo Nesbø’s Harry Hole. After years on the job working every kind of case imaginable, Detective Pohl knows something is wrong. A young woman has disappeared, but with no sign of a crime. She left a letter for her parents, asking them not to look for her. It’s too clean. His suspicions are confirmed when he discovers a link to another woman who disappeared, leaving a similar letter behind before dying in a freak accident. But that’s not all that connects them: the women look almost identical.

Once it becomes clear that Pohl can trust no one, not even within his own police department, the mystery of what happened to these victims is impossible to resist. Like Pohl, I had to know why someone would cause such destruction, but I was stunned to see how far the debris could reach. In Hartung’s gripping conclusion, I finally realized how deep these shards can cut—and how some wounds, although shallow, bleed the longest.

- Jack Butler, Editor

Book Description

One murdered, one missing. Both are almost identical.

Product Description

One murdered, one missing. Both are almost identical.

Detective Nik Pohl has seen every shade of darkness in his career. Not used to playing by the rules, he finds himself frozen out by his superiors. What’s worse, now he’s being blackmailed by a shadowy businessman into investigating a seemingly crimeless disappearance.

A young woman, Viola, left her home months ago, leaving a letter to her parents saying she wouldn’t be coming back. With a little digging Nik discovers the case of an almost identical-looking woman, who went missing in similar circumstances. There’s one important difference: that woman is dead. Viola may still be alive… but perhaps not for much longer.

When Nik is viciously attacked, it becomes clear that whoever is behind Viola’s disappearance has some high-level connections, and they will stop at nothing to shut him down. But he’s in too deep and the clock is ticking. He has to find Viola, and her captors, before it’s too late.

From million-copy bestselling German author Alexander Hartung
