The second case for Louise Bonì

The idyll of Kirchzarten was deceptive. Strangers had made an illegal stockpile of weapons underneath the shed. Louise Boni, the Chief Inspector from Freiburg, is faced with the most challenging case of her career. Initial tracks lead back to the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s. Yet when a cold-blooded murder takes place, Louise begins to understand that the case has far greater dimensions. Oliver Bottini, fourfold German crime prizewinner, has written a highly topical and controversial novel on the subject of arms trading and international terrorism.
