The Waters of Death

A welcome change for young journalist Katja Jakobs: influential millionaire industrialist Kennet Hanssen makes her a once-in-a-lifetime offer to collaborate on his biography—on one condition. She must go and stay with him in his remote house on an island in the Elbe for the duration of the project. Hesitant but curious about the fortress-like villa in which no outsider has set foot for decades, Katja accepts the unusual assignment. While by day she sets about exploring the house and island, in the evenings Hanssen’s tales sweep her up in into the maelstrom of his turbulent past.

But as yet Katja has no inkling that the manipulative millionaire has plans of quite another nature in store for her...
