Forget Miss Marple – here comes Miss Merkel.
After a gruelling stint as the most powerful woman in the world, Angela can finally put her feet up. With her husband Achim and their new pug Putin, she has retired to the idyllic village of Kleinfreudenstadt-on-Dumpfsee. But it isn’t easy to settle into country life. Angela’s fellow villagers all seem to want something from her. And baking and hiking just aren’t as exciting as international financial meltdowns or refugee waves or deranged American presidents.
So when local aristo Baron von Baugenwitz is found poisoned and dressed in armour in a castle dungeon locked from the inside, new life stirs in Angela. Finally a problem that needs solving! Supported by her husband, her bodyguard – and of course Putin – she embarks on a dangerous hunt for the killer. Will she find him? Or will one of the six women suspects finish her off first? Questions only a great detective can answer…
