Christoph Kloft bringt die Erinnerungen des Kriminalhauptkommissars a.D. in klaren Worten zu Papier. Gerhard Starke erzählt mit eindringlicher, leiser Stimme aus seinem Berufsleben. Er erinnert sich an jedes aspect und schildert Verbrechen, die am Menschen und seiner Menschlichkeit zweifeln lassen. Der Buchautor beobachtet ihn und schafft durch seine Aufzeichnungen jene unumgängliche Distanz zu den Verbrechen, denen der Kommissar mit viel Professionalität, doch immer wieder fassungslos gegenübersteht.
Auch in seinem zweiten Buch präsentiert das Autorenduo spektakuläre wahre Kapitalverbrechen. Ohne Sensationslust, sachlich und immer auf der Suche nach dem Warum.
