Read e-book online Charascho: Inspektor Bronstein kehrt zurück (German Edition) PDF

By Andreas Pittler

Wien 1945. Die Rote Armee kämpft in zerbombten Straßen den letzten Widerstand fanatischer Nazis nieder. Der ehemalige Polizeioberst David Bronstein, dem es gelang, den Krieg in Frankreich zu überleben, schließt sich derweilen einem tschechischen Heimkehrer-Treck an, um auf diese Weise über die Tschechoslowakei nach Wien zu gelangen. Endlich dort angekommen, besinnt er sich wieder seines ureigensten Metiers und begibt sich ohne Umschweife auf Verbrecherjagd, denn Verbrecher gibt es nach sieben Jahren Nationalsozialismus mehr als genug. Und die gehen, bloß um unerkannt entkommen zu können, auch im neuen Österreich über Leichen. Wieder einmal beginnt für Bronstein ein Wettlauf gegen die Zeit.

Nach seinem Ausflug in die Gegenwart mit „Der Fluch der Sirte“ kehrt Pittler zu seiner erfolgreichen Kultfigur David Bronstein zurück. Auch im neuen Band legt er seinen Finger wieder in die Wunden österreichischer Zeitgeschichte. Dennoch kommt der Wiener Schmäh – wie üblich – nicht zu kurz.
