Clear the stage for the great Vikki Victoria – undercover against her will and alter ego of trans author Gloria Gray

Vikki is a well-known trans woman in her mid-40s. She lives in Munich and has lots of unconventional friends: 16-year-old Kathi from the flat below; her ex-boyfriend Wolf - who she is on good terms with still - and an ageing motorbike rocker. She is happy with her life. Until one morning, that is, when she receives a call from Wolf telling her that Toni, the man who has been sending her death threats for over 14 years, has escaped from prison. Vikki needs to get to somewhere safe – and fast. But where would that be? It seems that the only place to go is back home, to Upper Overbord. But Vikki must get to the bottom of why Toni is so convinced that she betrayed him to the police in the first place…
And because the police aren’t to be trusted, Vikki, Wolf, and his biker friends decide to get to the bottom of this for themselves.
