The Ice Angel

The angel is the only witness...

The New Year’s Eve celebrations on the banks of the Isar in Munich come to an abrupt end when the body of a dead man is discovered at the foot of the Friedensengel (the Angel of Peace). The senior consultant of an exclusive fertility clinic in the idyllic small town of Bayerischzell has been strangled. Helped along by journalist Stella Felix and her sharp-witted mother, PC Josefa Lautenschläger’s investigations lead to a clandestine and exclusive realm—the world of reproductive medicine. Undaunted, the three ladies set out on a chase for the killer among desperate would-be parents, over-ambitious doctors and shady profiteers.

• reproductive medicine—a highly charged, controversial topic
• a fast-paced crime thriller with a unique investigative team
• bubbling with wit and alive with local atmosphere
