In the Dark by Andreas Pfluger

In the Dark

Andreas Pfluger

If Jenny Aaron is the Sherlock Holmes of the German security services, then who is her Moriarty? Does she have a Watson to depend on? And can the ends ever justify the means? A nail-biting thriller that also looks deeper than most into both possible reasons for sociopathic behaviour and the age-old question 'Who will watch the watchers'.

Extract

He aims the Glock at his brother, closes his eyes and hears the shot. He sees him collapse ... enjoys the blood pouring from his mouth, smiles and lets him suffocate in his own blood.
No wish as great as this, no quiver as great as his, when he opens his eyes again and stares at the door his brother has just closed behind him.
