The Maiden’s Eye
The fear that gripped her froze her blood. Lena tried to take refuge in her flat, but in vain. The figure in black leather drew nearer…
A young woman is attacked and brutally murdered on her doorstep right in the heart of Vienna – and she’s not the first victim. The murderer strikes every fortnight – always on a Saturday – leaving no viable clues, and witnesses who are unreliable at best. The only common link is that all the victims are young women living alone. How can Major Belonoz– the hard-bitten chief of Vienna’s Murder Squad – and his team go about finding this vicious serial
killer when there are no leads to go on? How can they win the race against time?
To make matters worse, Belonoz is assigned the inexperienced prosecutor Lily Horn – but he seriously underestimates this feisty young woman’s tenacity, and he’s not the only one. Lily – who has just returned from New York – throws herself into the case to take her mind off a failed love affair. She is determined to put an end to this terrible series of killings, and her ambition sets her on course to bypass the scheming politicians and fame-hungry freeloaders who try to get in her way.
Here at long last is a Vienna-based crime thriller that really captures the unique flavour of the city, from the trendy bars on the banks of the Danube Canal to the cosy suburbs, featuring an unorthodox team of investigators that keeps the reader hooked from first page to last.
