Description

Somewhere in Berlin, a man is being crucified. One detective has 40 hours to find him, or thousands will die…

Faris Iskander, an Egyptian-born German national, is a detective on enforced leave when he receives a video of a man being crucified. The first in a series of religiously fuelled attacks, Faris must act quickly to save the man and stop his aggressors. If he fails, thousands of people in Berlin will die in pre-coordinated explosions.

But this case is especially complicated for Faris, who was placed on suspension after avenging a racial attack. Forced to face his own demons, can Faris uncover the truth in time to save lives and prevent catastrophe? Or will his personal involvement compromise his mission?

Newly-translated from the German and set against the cultural tumult of twenty-first century Berlin, Forty Hours is a fast-paced, intelligent crime thriller that explores ideas of guilt, redemption, identity and belonging. It also offers English-speaking readers a fascinating glimpse into the realities of life and policing in the German capital, and will please all who enjoy high quality police procedurals and crime stories.

Brilliantly written , I was hooked from the beginning. A detective with a difficult past just about holding it together but supported by a team of colleagues bar one. This book has it all a great plot central to this is a religious fanatic, a crucifixion, mental abuse and murder. Lost love and potential love, tragedy . Friendship , humanity, faith . Will be looking out for this authors books.

Faris Iskander is a detective who never seems to catch a break. On enforced leave because of an incident that happened, he receives a phone call...and once again luck is not on his side. This book was amazing! Fast paced, full of action and filled with points of view from many characters throughout. I really enjoyed being able to follow the story through different perspectives. I really appreciated how there wasnt much deviation from the storyline itself. Pretty much the majority of the book was about the solving of the mystery, and it never got boring. The twisty turn at the end of the story was great!! I honestly wasn't expecting it at all and I dont think you will either!
