THE WAYS OF JUSTICE
This is the first book in a white-collar crime fiction series. I have set the stories in Munich. The city’s location in south western Germany and its proximity to Austria, Switzerland, Italian and the Czech Republic make it the ideal choice for a mystery crime thriller series. International white-collar crime flourishes in this large area and the geographical complexity makes the work of DCS Frank Kruger that much more difficult.
The city’s history goes back more than 900 years when it was a major city in the Holy Roman Empire. Now, it is better known for the October Fest and its football team, Bayern München, but also for the spectacular court trials which have taken place there in recent times.
Writing a crime fiction book based in a Central European environment has its problems, however. Especially as police work is differently organised and the rank designations differnt to Anglo Saxon grades, but I have tried to anglicise them and to make them more easily understandable to a non-German reader.
