Ein Tierpfleger des Opel-Zoos im Taunus findet im Elefantengehege eine menschliche Hand. Die dazu gehörige Leiche liegt in einer frisch gemähten Wiese gegenüber dem Zoogelände. Der Tote war Lehrer und vehementer Umweltschützer, der von vielen Schülern glühend verehrt wurde - und von einigen Einwohnern der Stadt ebenso sehr gehasst. Doch liegt hier das Motiv für einen Mord?

The war is over. Bernie Gunther, our sardonic former Berlin homicide detective and unwilling SS officer, is now living on the French Riviera. It is 1956, and Bernie is the go-to guy at the Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat, the man you turn to for touring tips or if you need a fourth for bridge. As it happens, a local writer needs just that - someone to fill the fourth seat in a regular game that is the usual evening diversion at the Villa Mauresque. Not just any writer. Perhaps the richest and most famous living writer in the world: W. Somerset Maugham.

Berni Gunther is the man. I am hooked since I read the 1st book. All through recent history, he is a true hero with flaws. What a great book.

Daniel James Brown's robust book tells the story of the University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. The sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the boys defeated elite rivals first from eastern and British universities and finally the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler in the Olympic games in Berlin, 1936.
