Part of a series: Jessica Niemi series
Detective Jessica Niemi is on a hunt to save the life of a missing blogger. But is it already too late?
Detective Jessica Niemi and her team have a new mystery on the table: a young woman’s corpse has been found on an icy beach, and two famous Instagram influencers have gone missing at the same time. One of the missing bloggers is a manga artist, and the dead woman found on the beach is dressed in a manga outfit – the two cases seem to be strangely connected.
While following the clues that are hidden deeply in Instagram Jessica struggles to keep her head clear. She keeps having repeating nightmares about her mother. And she has a feeling that something really awful is approaching her from the darkness…
I was convinced that Max did not just want to tell a dramatic story. I was certain that he had a vision. A vision to add something extraordinary to the world of thrillers and crime fiction, something that I have not seen in a suspense novel for many, many years. Bastei Lübbe is proud and honored to share Max’s vision as his German publisher. And I wish I could read this story for the first time again.
