Ulrich  Ritzel - The Black Edges of the Ambers


"Keenly observed and brilliantly written." Die Zeit

Detective Inspector Berndorf has just been handed his retirement certificate and was looking forward to a nice, quiet existence as a pensioner. Then, however, a letter forces him to plunge into some extremely difficult investigations – investigations that are to turn into a journey through time back to the stormy summer of RAF terrorism in the summer of 1972. They also make Berndorf face not only the German past but also his own…

Berndorf half-heartedly starts private enquiries; he doesn't really want to have anything more to do with the heat of those years and that disturbing time of his life. It is his significant other, Barbara, who finally urges him to take the investigations more seriously.

"A literary pleasure far beyond the run-of-the-mill of this genre – and, by-the-by, it is also an intelligent novel about the period."
