Sample text

Carl merkte, wie sich seine Augenbrauen beträchtlich nach oben bewegten. « Der strahlte übers ganze Gesicht. »Ich hätte das gar nicht gesehen, wenn das Foto nicht die ganze Zeit in Nasenhöhe an der Wand gehangen hätte. « Es schien fast so, als hätte Roses undurchdringlicher Panzer aus punkerschwarzer Arroganz durch die neue Aufgabe einen klitzekleinen Riss bekommen.

Verfluchter Assad. Verflucht der Mann, der Lis gekapert hatte. Und zuletzt auch noch verfluchte Ärzte ohne Grenzen, die Mona, das Epizentrum seines Begehrens, ins finsterste Afrika gelockt hatten. «, fragte Assad, als sie am Konferenzraum vorbeigingen. « Carl ignorierte Assads anzügliches Grinsen und öffnete die Tür zu Marcus Jacobsens Büro.

In der letzten Zeit waren einfach abartig viele Fälle auf seinem Schreibtisch gelandet.
