The River Runs Red
In East Germany in the spring of 1989, 14-year-old Felix Waltz escapes from a life of abuse at the notorious Stasi youth prison, Torgau.
On New Year's Eve 2004, a woman awakens from a coma. She’s been unconscious for 12 years since being viciously attacked by a lake. As her case is re-opened it soon transpires the events of that night are linked to events that happened before the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Hanne Drais, a criminal psychologist working with a Berlin police team, is one of those involved in reopening the case. As Hanne discovers the truth she’s shocked to find both her past and her destiny are indelibly interwoven with the man at the heart of her investigation.
At a Berlin landmark, a kidnapper abandons his victims, with a small box containing a personal ‘memento’ to perpetually remind them of their ordeal.
What connects these men to their abductor nicknamed Colossus? Has he an old score to settle?’
The case develops into an intriguing game of cat and mouse for Hanne Drais, the criminal psychologist working within a Berlin Police team led by her irascible boss, Kommissar Oskar Kruger and his laid-back deputy, Detective Stefan Glockner.
Their investigations unravel a tale of altruistic justice and revenge resonating from the former communist East Germany, to a reunified Germany where undertones of extremism continue to exist.
The past must be uncovered before the present is held to account.
The River Runs Red
Berlin is in the midst of its worst winter in decades.
Against the backdrop of freezing temperatures, blizzards and snowstorms, the city refuses to grind to a halt. Lurking within the shadows is a Stasi victim, out for revenge against the former East German informants known as ‘The Ears’. Their dark secrets are about to be exposed.
A mix of ice and water and a single gunshot, provides the ultimate payback.
With the Millennium approaching, Hanne Drais, the criminal psychologist working within the Berlin Mitte Police team led by the irascible Oskar Kruger and his laid-back sidekick, Stefan Glockner, are seeking the perpetrator of these violent crimes.
Who is the man they’ve nicknamed Snowflake?
Who is turning the river red?
