The Big Plan. Dengler's ninth case


The trail of big money – Dengler uncovers the machinations of the “Euro rescuers”

Georg Dengler risks being sunk by his biggest case to date: Who kidnapped the EU official Anna Hartmann? What does she have to do with the so-called “rescue of Greece”? And, above all: Where did the billions in European tax money really go?

At last, the lean years are over! At least that’s how it feels to the private investigator Georg Dengler. For the first time, he has landed a truly well-paid assignment: The Federal Foreign Office in Berlin wants him to find its employee Anna Hartmann. A cell-phone video suggests that she was kidnapped. With the help of his technologically savvy girlfriend Olga, Dengler manages to identify four suspicious men. But before he can question them, every last one of them is murdered. Is there a traitor in the Foreign Office? Or is Dengler’s new colleague Petra Wolff passing information on to the killer? Dengler’s investigation ends up in a dead end.
The kidnapped official had been loaned out to the Troika, which dictated the Eurogroup’s terms to Greece. Does this hold the key to the case? Taking another crack at it, Dengler stumbles on the biggest secret of the so-called “rescue of Greece”: In what accounts did the many billions in European tax money finally end up? When Dengler investigates the names of the individuals and institutions that pocketed these vast sums, he himself becomes a target…
