The second crime noir by the best-selling author
In his second crime novel, Mark Benecke takes his readers into the dark world of cannibalism, where unknown desires and fantasies push private investigators Becker and Funke to their limits.
A strange discovery turns up in the middle of Berlin: a suitcase filled with human bones. The authorities are faced with a mystery and call on private investigators Bastian Becker and Janina Funke. A suspicion soon materializes: could the bones be related to a case of cannibalism? The investigators follow the clues, which lead them into ever darker circles. Without realizing it, Becker himself becomes the focus of the perpetrator’s attention. Can he arrest him without endangering Funke? A murderous hunt begins.
