Der neuste Fall für Cormoran Strike & Robin Ellacott - das cleverste Ermittlerduo der britischen Kriminalliteratur. Nachdem Robin Ellacott ein mysteriöses Paket in Empfang genommen hat, muss sie zu ihrem Entsetzen feststellen, dass es ein abgetrenntes Frauenbein enthält.

Doch als weitere erschreckende Vorfälle London erschüttern, gerät das Ermittlerduo selbst mehr und mehr in Bedrängnis...

This was the day in 1953 when we finally fled from our life of oppression which had lasted 20 years. Two successive dictatorships, one of Hitler and the other of Stalin, caused the most horrific slaughter of civilians and soldiers, eclipsing all prior history. During these first years of my life, I was plainly lucky to survive. After this day, I had a much better chance to experience the freedom needed to lead a life of creativity, satisfaction, and ultimately prosperity, all directed largely by our own decisions. th The 17 of June 1953 was a Wednesday. I stayed in the apartment of my parents in my hometown of Brandenburg, in the German Democratic Republic (GDR), the former Russian occupied zone of Germany. The summer vacation of the Humboldt University in East Berlin, some 40 mi further east, had just started. But, I was alone with my father, ´´Vati.
