»Thrilling, thrilling, thrilling!«
Radio WDR 1Live 

"It starts out well, growing better and better, the plot reaching a climax so thrilling that you end up reading with your eyes half covered."

"A polished crime-novel at high speed."

"A cleverly executed, flawless crime-novel debut with an unnerving parallel narrative cursing through the book like a devilish under-current."
