[Cross Stone]
A Crime Novel, 224 pp.

Warning, Falling Rocks!

Henno Allenstein is a geology professor in Cologne. One day, he receives a package without a return address. It contains a piece of basalt that turns out to be part of a wayside cross. That same day, the police commissioner Gabriele Kronberg asks him to come to a nearby quarry. Numerous houses were destroyed and two persons were killed as a result of a rock fall. Someone seems to have helped matters along with explosives. When another quarry explodes, killing a further person, it becomes clear that it is not a coincidence. Allenstein and Kronberg feverishly search for leads to find the perpetrator. What significance do the clues from the environment of the Catholic Church have?

A thrilling crime novel that leads the reader to the depths of earthly stone and the abyss of the human soul.
