epub Gefahr und Begierde

Book description

Just one word. Uttered almost in whisper, by a woman. She told her lover: "Run." I paused, staggered, heartbeat quickening as I raced towards the ending. Then I went back to the page where this word was, eleven pages earlier.


""Run,' she said softly."


They are insidea jewelry store. A rich, married, powerful politician working for the Japanese occupying Hongkong during the war and his young, beautiful mistress secretly working for the resistance. They are choosing a diamond ring, his gift to her. Her colleagues at the resistance are outside waiting to ambush him. She was their willing bait, they had set him up for an assassination.

You will wait for an explosive finish. A shootout, guns ablaze, a violent dramatic end. Instead, you'll get one word, almost imperceptible, like a light feather that silently drops to the ground on a windless day. And thatword, "run," that solitary word, three letters, a plea, perhaps a cry, creates stories within the story, hidden sequels, questions needing to be asked, uncertainties over facts erstwhile laid plain.
