Author's Bio

Cay Rademacher was born in 1965 in Northern Germany, but lives now in Southern France. (Anybody who has seen both places knows why.) He has studied history and philosophy in Cologne and Washington, D.C. and is working as a journalist. He is also the author of several thrillers - including the trilogy on Oberinspektor Frank Stave, who is fighting crime in the ruins of British-occupied Hamburg in the 1940s.
