Elle pensait qu’il ne voudrait pas laisser un enfant derrière lui, au cas où… Elle savait d’instinct que « los angeles femme et les enfants ne faisaient pas partie du sac » et elle ne voulait pas alourdir sa charge.
Intense était le mot qui lui venait à l’esprit quand elle pensait à lui. Regard excessive, présence énergique. Gilles n’était pas n’importe qui et cela se sentait. C’était un homme de l’ombre qui avait vécu des choses différentes. plants comprenait le sens de l’expression « passer derrière le miroir ».

Il l’avait déposé dans les bras de plant life qui n’en avait pas su plus. Comme dernier lien avec son passé, ils lui avaient conservé son véritable prénom Tom. C’était maintenant un petit garçon dégourdi de cinq ans et demi.

Das Durchdringen der satanistischen Strukturen aber erweist sich als äußerst schwierig bis quickly unmöglich. Ein verdeckter Ermittler muss her. Doch ob dieser dem kriminellen Treiben im Frankenland Einhalt gebieten kann?

>>"Von diesem Ex-Kriminaler können gestandene Autoren das Recherchieren lernen. Und das Erzeugen von nicht enden wollenden Spannungsbögen. Seine mystery zeichnen sich aus durch hieb- und stichfeste Beweisketten, unaufdringliches Fachwissen, fesselnde Unterhaltung und die nötige Prise Human Touch." <<

>>Sowohl die authentische Schilderung des Büro- und Ermittlungsalltags von Kommissar „Schorsch“ Bachmeyer und seinem crew wie auch die Krimi-Handlung als solche überzeugen durch realitätsnahe Bezüge und äußerst authentisch wirkende Dialoge. Es ist den Verfassern gelungen, über dem großen
Spannungsbogen des zugrundeliegenden kriminalistischen Sachverhalts mehrere kleinere, in sich abgeschlossene Spannungsfelder einzubauen, die es dem Leser schwer machen, das Buch vorzeitig aus der Hand zu legen. <<
