SCHATTENBRUDER

MIRKO BEETSCHEN’S DEBUT NOVEL IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL PUZZLE ABOUT IDENTITY AND APPEARANCES, A MULTI-LAYERED THRILLER WITH A SURPRISING OUTCOME.

 

Samuel Bach (37) seems to have everything he could wish for: He’s a successful journalist and architecture critic, lives in a wealthy Swiss city and enjoys his single life, culture and a small circle of friends. When he flirts with a stranger one night, however, his life takes a wrong turn.
 
Raymond does his best to maintain contact – much to Samuel’s chagrin. The seemingly random encounters and efforts of his devotee become increasingly irritating and more and more threatening. The shy stranger gradually evolves into a merciless stalker, and Samuel has no other choice than to turn the tables. That’s when he makes a shocking discovery.
