Of all places, it has to be at the idyllic holiday home by the lake that Erika, the attractive wife of engineer Wallmann, falls to her death. A tragic accident, the police say.

»Kettenbach writes with a unique mixture of brittleness and tenderness, humour and melancholy, and his stories are always electrifyingly credible.«
Neue Zürcher Zeitung
»A brilliant storyteller and one of the few contemporary German thriller writers of real standing.«
Ulrich Baron / Rheinischer Merkur, Bonn

»A devilish dive into an obsessed mind by a prolific German crime writer. Despite, or because of, his many humorous quirks, Scholten is also a convincing Everyman.«

Kirkus Reviews
»A devilish dive into an obsessed mind. Despite, or because of, his many humorous quirks, the hero is also a convincing everyman.«
Kirkus (starred review), New York
»A beautifully translated thriller, not a drop of blood on its pages. The nastiness takes place off-stage which makes it all the more threatening.«
BBC 2, Culture, London
