Christine  Brand - The Brother


A village hiding a dark secret. A boy’s disappearance. And a bitter truth that overshadows everything…

Irena Jundt's father has passed away. Irena, a forensic scientist with Bern's criminal police, has to return to the remote mountain village of her childhood to clear out her father's house. Her childhood ended abruptly with her brother Beni's disappearance, for which a brutal child murderer was found guilty at the time. But when she returns, Irina realises that something isn't quite right about the story, and that the villagers are hiding something.

Soon after, a small boy goes missing in Bern – and Sandro Bandini, chief of the major crime division at the Bern Police, pulls out all the stops to solve the case. His girlfriend, the journalist Milla, also follows the child's trail with her usual unconventional methods. As yet no one suspects the far-reaching consequences the case will have – and that the past is still casting a deep shadow over the present…
