Lilli Berlin Crime Novel ISBN 978-3-86789-198-1 224 pages
Berlin, start of the 1980s: Rick Jankowski must go underground. With a grazing shot on the arm, he lands in the apartment of his old friend Benjamin and confides in him: he recounts the nature of his deep love for Lilli and the business dealings that his seedy boss Werner Karl Lausen ensnared him in. When the boss escapes an assassination attempt, his right hand Dr. Schupp believes he is holding all the aces. And finally there is Lilli, who is faced with a decision she alone can make…
In a matter of a few dreary January days, an adventurous story, marked by love and longing, persecution and death, unfolds – a scenario between East and West, whose protagonists seem to be pulled by invisible strings.
Ulf Miehe’s gripping and suspense-loaded crime thriller frames a realistic and fantastic piece of East-West reality.
