Death on the Waiting List

Death on the Waiting List

Veit Heinichen

A new case for Superintendent Proteo Laurenti from Trieste: because some cling to life, others must lose it.

The exclusive beauty clinic outside Trieste allegedly specializes only in harmless but expensive cosmetic surgery – from the nose downward. Even Laura, wife of Superintendent Proteo Laurenti, is interested. But Laurenti has other things to worry about. Ever since the summit conference of the German Chancellor and Berlusconi, when a naked man was run over by a foreign guest's limousine, Trieste is up in arms. The entire town is infected with politics, everybody suspects everybody else, even Proteo Laurenti becomes a target. And when one of the surgeons from the clinic is brutally maimed and bleeds to death, public sentiment begins to sour. Laurenti must disentangle a foul network of protectionism, corruption, denunciation, murder and manslaughter to get at the core of violence. Strands originating from all over Europe converge in the clinic on the barren mountain, until it transpires that its high walls shelter not only less-than-perfect noses but an international trade in body parts. Trieste is, once again, the centre of the world. And Proteo Laurenti, by turns infatuated with a Croatian attorney and dreaming of a quiet and simple life with his old police dog, must gather all his wits to avoid succumbing to the general frenzy.

"Compared to Donna Leon, Veit Heinichen holds his ground brilliantly. I am already looking forward to Proteo Laurenti's third case." (Thomas Meyerhöfer, Bayerischer Rundfunk)
