Doctor Felix Hoffmann’s life is textbook success: a seasoned physician at a Berlin hospital, respected by colleagues, and devoted to his amorous and intelligent girlfriend Celine. It’s a life filled with medical work, televised soccer games, and the chill of German beer.

Yet, when a former patient shows up dead by causes unknown, Hoffmann signs a death certificate that may be his own. Curiosity and sheer medical devotion propel him to investigate. However, his autopsy order goes unfulfilled as the body is cremated and hospital records vanish. Soon, Hoffmann discovers a diagnosis of conspiratorial proportions. The deeper he scans, the darker it gets, until a criminal clue emerges from Russia. Despite adversity, Hoffmann is determined to sleuth through with his own brand of logic and the aid of Celine’s powers of deduction.

    " interesting look at hospital administration, plus a good mystery... not sure if story was adequately outweighed by the whining of the Dr./detective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyce Traverso | 8/5/2013

    " I found this book when it was advertised on my Kindle. Since I like mysteries, I decided to try it. It was very enjoyable. It was originally written in German but has been wonderfully translated that it reads like an American mystery novel except for all the place names are in German! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Howard | 6/18/2013

    " Not a bad mystery. somewhat of a complicated hard to follow plot. Found a few typos or I might have scored it higher. Can't complain as it was a borrowed book and I would read another of the authors books. It is a translation from German, set in Berlin hospital. "

    " Enjoyable. See my Amazon review. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandee Priser | 2/4/2013

    " A likable if not entirely believable read. Weak in some of the computer forensic and forensic accounting topics, but enjoyable. After all, what's better than financial indiscretion with a bit of international intrigue built in. "
