“The storyline is as original as the characters. Between the lines, you even believe you can detect the scent of Provence (…) Great that Blanc will continue to solve cases.” Kölner Stadtanzeiger on "Mörderischer Mistral"

“A light taste like a cool summer wine, shimmering dark like the expansive marshes of Camarque. A crime novel for summer, bien sur, and what a novel!” Elisabeth Hermann, Bild on "Tödliche Camargue"

“Cay Rademacher writes with great empathy for the region and its memorable characters. Even the language is a pleasure, as it melts on the tongue. The reader swings back and forth between chuckles and tense expectation, and will be shocked by the crashing finale.
Cleverly composed, light as a feather, with a large portion of conceit.” Emmanuel van Stein, Kölner Stadtanzeiger on "Brennender Midi"

Captain Roger Blanc and his colleague Marius Tonon are convinced they have misunderstood the details of their new assignment: They are supposed to protect divers in the Côte Bleue, the wild, indented Mediterranean coastline, while they are working beneath the sea’s surface. A routine job on the turquoise sea, along a pine-studded craggy coast? Too amazing to be true. However, the idyllic job is soon darkened by a horrifying discovery: A dead diver bobs in the water, a harpoon in his right eye. Everything points toward a terrible accident that seems rather odd in its banality. Blanc investigates the incident and discovers that Luc Mignaux, the dead man, was one of the wreck divers off the coast of Marseille. These are specialized divers who plunder centuries-old, sunken ships and then sell their booty to wealthy collectors. A line of work just as illegal as it is dangerous. And one that is despised by fisherwoman and eco-activist Christin Antues… However, when she also turns up dead, one thing is clear: Blanc is once again knee deep in a new case.
