Heimo Kapeller has his hands full. It started with a seemingly simple shooting on an isolated farm. But a day later another body turns up only a few kilometers from the first. Two killings in such a remote place must be related. But try as they might, the Homicide team cannot find any connection between the victims. And no motive for either death.
But murder is suddenly the least of Heimo’s problems. He’s stumbled into a major people trafficking operation, and it looks like the smugglers are getting nervous. Before he knows it, the police forces of three countries are involved, his new boss wants to back away from the mess, and his main suspects start to disappear.
This train wreck may be too much even for Heimo’s skills.
