Whitsun Sacrifice

Just how free are we?

A bizarre murder: the body of a prostitute is discovered in the garden of a Free Church parish hall. There’s a note in her skull bearing the religious epigram: “the truth will set you free”.

When Detective Anton Glauberg returns home from the scene of the crime, he is rather surprised to find his former colleague Paula Reinhardt waiting outside his door. Reinhardt was convicted of murder herself years ago but has just been released on parole. Glauberg takes Paula along on his investigations, which soon lead him to a researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Neuroscience. The researcher had declared god dead from a scientific perspective—thereby antagonising the representatives of the Free Church.

A gripping literary detective novel about religious fundamentalism, the latest insights in the field of neuroscience and the question of what truths we can and cannot live with.

Press acclaim for What Love Is

»Ulrich Woelk’s new novel explores life and death issues with gripping intensity. Austere and without frills, his style is nevertheless poetic, his linguistic dexterity sheer delight—in terms of both aesthetics and entertainment value. «
