Come, Sweet Death!
The fourth Brenner book finds the detective in Vienna, uncovering corruption in the ambulance business...and just barely escaping with his life in the process.
Disillusioned ex-cop Simon Brenner decides to take a job as an ambulance driver, in the hopes of getting away from the drudgery and corruption in the police force, and finding a "worthy profession." But the ambulance service he goes to work for has a problem—their major competitors are beating them to every pick-up, somehow listening on their radio communications. And Brenner can't help being just a little bit curious about this chance to do some detective work.
Things turn considerably darker as he digs deeper, and it turns out that ambulance services are, literally, a cutthroat business. And there are people who don't want their business exposed. Brenner races around summertime Vienna, lights flashing, siren blaring, in a desperate attempt to fit it all together before there's another dead body on his conscience. A caustic and hilarious new installment in the Brenner series.X
