The Gods are SMILING!!! Die Goetter lachen sich tot!

I'm a first reads winner! Unglaublich. Das Buch aber ist auf Deutsch. Das wird ja interessant, einen Rezension zu schreiben!

Update:

Ok. I admit it. I just couldn't plough through the really, really, really, really, really, really (even by German standards), really long non-verbal scenes.

But...the dialogue was just so apt! I used work at one of the largest City firms in London and believe me, lawyers, whether English or German, talk exactly like this.

So...the book received the usual treatment of first 3 chapters and last chapter and skimming everywhere else when I cannot summon sufficient concentration. I gave this book away to my father-in-law (he's a retired judge) as a Christmas present. Unfinished.

Verdict: my father-in-law really enjoyed his present (which is why it is sitting on my 'read' shelf and has three stars. He didn't mind the long-winded passages, and we both liked the plot). ( )

Book description
Nur scheinbar beginnt für Theo Lindner, Partner einer international agierenden Anwaltskanzlei und Familienvater, ein ganz normaler Arbeitstag in Berlin: In einer unvorhergesehen anberaumten Sitzung erfährt er, dass sein Kollege Joachim Peters Opfer einer Entführung geworden ist – die 25 Millionen DM Lösegeld sollen die Mitglieder der Sozietät aus ihrem Privatvermögen berappen. Innerhalb der Sozietät beginnt ein nervenaufreibendes Tauziehen um den adäquaten Umgang mit der Notlage, denn einerseits kann sich jeder Teilhaber als potenzielles Opfer mit dem Entführten identifizieren, andererseits empfinden alle ihr materielles Wohlergehen auf Jahre hinaus bedroht.
Die Lage spitzt sich zu, als das zweite Lebenszeichen verschlüsselte Hinweise auf Peters’ Aufenthaltsort zu enthalten scheint und er Theo Lindner, mit dem ihn privat nichts außergewöhnlich verbindet, explizit Grüße zukommen lässt …
