Butterfly on the Storm


The first instalment in the best-selling original Dutch thriller** Haunted by a past you can never escape ...A young boy is found in woods outside Amsterdam. Broken and bloody, he appears to be the victim of a brutal hit-and-run. When the police at the hospital ask what happened, the one word the boy repeats they don't understand. But journalist Farah Hafez does. She left Afghanistan as a child and she recognizes her native tongue. As the boy is taken into surgery she finds herself visiting the scene of the crime, seeking to discover how a little Afghan boy came to be so far from home. Instead, she comes across a burnt-out car with two bodies inside - a sinister clue to something far darker than a simple road accident. It is just the start of a journey that will lead her from one twisted strand to another in an intricate web of crime and corruption that stretches across Europe and deep into a past that Farah had sought to escape - a past that nearly killed her. Butterfly on the Storm is the first in a tense, atmospheric and gripping new trilogy which has drawn parallels with Stieg Larsson's Millennium series.Praise for Walter Lucius 'Disturbing, apocalyptic, gripping' Dutch Daily De Limburger 'Riveting until the very end' AD Weekend [Dutch Newspaper] 'The Dutch answer to the tsunami of Scandinavian thrillers' BB Boekblad

Motýl v bouři


Investigativní novinářka Farah Hafezová se dostává na stopu mezinárodní sítě překupníků dětí. Když na pohotovost přivezou malého chlapce v tradičním dívčím afghánském kroji, investigativní novinářka Farah Hafezová ?se chopí role tlumočnice. Jeho osud ?na ni hluboce zapůsobí. Článek, který o něm napíše, se ale začne ?objevovat na pochybných internetových stránkách. Hafezová s hrůzou zjistí, že afghánské kanibalské rituály pronikly až do Amsterdamu. Se svým kolegou se vydává po jejich stopách. Při svém pátrání ale narazí na kartel, ve kterém jsou zapletení i politici a jiné vlivné osoby. Na stopě mezinárodní sítě překupníků dětí se v Moskvě a Johannesburgu dozvídají víc, než by měli. Jejich pátrání se tak stává bojem o holý život, který už nikdy nebude jako dřív. Vyšetřování otřese základy holandské politické scény, ale ?Farah ?se zároveň musí ?utkat se svou minulostí. Znepokojivý thriller holandského spisovatele Waltera Luciuse se stal okamžitě bestsellerem. Za tímto úspěchem stojí především silné postavy novinářů, detektivů i obyčejných Afghánců zapojené do různých linií vyprávění, které se nakonec důmyslně propojí?.? Na své si v této knize přijdou nejen ?čtenáři Stiega Larssona
