“Louise Bonì is back. A female chief inspector as we have never seen before. Haunted by avenging angels, herself one of them, unbearable with alcohol, even more when sober, a listening monster, staggering from one failed love to the next, ingenious instinct, unfit teamplayer, rebellious. Our absolute favourite chief inspector. A very hard, a very easy book.” – Elmar Krekeler, Die Welt

Finally a new case for Louise Bonì

Louise Bonì, Chief Inspector of the Criminal Police Department of Freiburg, receives information from an informant that an unknown man has procured two weapons from Russian criminals. Louise follows up on the information in order to prevent a possible violent crime. Before too long, she finds the owner of the car that was used by the buyer to pick up the weapons. The owner, however, has a watertight alibi for the evening in question. The driver was somebody else, Ricky Janisch, a neo-Nazi and member of the extreme right “Southwest Brigade”. Louise and her team observe Janisch and are led to further involved parties, all of whom belong to the right-wing scene. The deeper they go, the more frightening the situation becomes: they begin to wonder whether it might be only one branch of a larger neo-Nazi network. The main question is, however, how they are supposed to stop an assassination when their opponent always seems to be one step ahead of them and they do not even know who the target will be? Then Louise realises who the perfect victim is. But it's maybe already too late...
