After convicting a superior for corruption and shooting off a gangster's crown jewels, the career of Hamburg's most hard-bitten state prosecutor, Chastity Riley, has taken a nose dive:  she has been transferred to the tedium of witness protection to prevent her making any more trouble.  However, when she is assigned to the case of an anonymous man lying under police guard in hospital, Chastity's instinct for the big, exciting case kicks in.  Using all her powers of persuasion, she soon gains her charge's confidence, and finds herself on the trail to Leipzig, a new ally, and a whole heap of lethal synthetic drugs.  When she discovers that a friend and former colleague is trying to bring down Hamburg's Albanian mafia kingpin single-handedly, it looks like Chas Riley's dull life on witness protection really has been short-lived....

Simone Buccholz was born in Hanau in 1972.  At university, she studied Philosophy and Literature, worked as a waitress and a columnist, and trained to be a journalist at the prestigious Henri-Nannen-School in Hamburg.  In 2016, Simone Buchholz was awarded the Crime Cologne Award as well as runner-up for the German Crime Fiction Prize for Blue Night, which was number one on the KirmiZEIT Best of Crime List for months.  She lives in Sankt Pauli, in the heart of Hamburg, with her husband and son.
