One-Way Ticket: A Hamburg Crime Story

by Peter Sarda




Fans of European hardboiled noir crime fiction will revel in this twisty German police procedural of tough cops, brutal gangsters, and other denizens of Hamburg's violent underworld. When a Homicide Detective transfers to Hamburg, little does he know he's stepped into the biggest police scandal in the city's history. His new partner is a moody biker with ties to a mob boss who owns most of the whorehouses in Herbertstrasse, fighting a hostile takeover from a casino owner and drug dealer -- a person of interest in several murders with ties to the Senate. When the interior senator is found dead in Herbertstrasse, the only people to trust less than each other are those in City Hall.
