The Ghosts of Altona Paperback



WINNER OF THE BLOODY SCOTLAND CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR 2015 Head of Hamburg's Murder Commission, Jan Fabel is used to the dead, but when a routine enquiry spirals out of control he finds himself on much closer terms with death - his own.

As he struggles to process this experience, his first case comes back to haunt him: Monika Krone's body is found at last, fifteen years after she disappeared.

Monika - beautiful, intelligent, cruel - was the centre of a group obsessed with the gothic.

When men who knew Monika start turning up dead, the crime scenes full of gothic symbolism, Fabel realizes he is looking for a killer with both a hunger for vengeance and a terrifying taste for the macabre.

A true gothic demon is stalking the streets of Hamburg ...
