From one of Europe's bestselling writers comes a spellbinding and utterly compelling court room drama, which will stay with you for a long time. Ferdinand von Schirach's The Collini Case has been at the top of the German charts since publication and will be loved by all fans of Bernhard Schlink and John le Carré.



A murder. A murderer. No motif.

For thirty-four years Fabrizio Collini has worked diligently for Mercedes Benz. He is a quiet and respectable person until the day he visits one of Berlin's most luxurious hotels and kills an innocent man.

Young attorney Caspar Leinen takes the case. Getting Collini a not-guilty verdict would make his name. But too late he discovers that Collini's victim - an industrialist of some renown - is known to him.

Now Leinen is caught in a professional and personal dilemma. Collini admits the murder but won't say why he did it, forcing Leinen to defend a man who won't put up a defence. And worse, a close friend and relation of the victim insists that he give up the case. His reputation, his career and this friendship are all at risk.

Then he makes a discovery that goes way beyond his own petty concerns and exposes a terrible and deadly truth at the heart of German justice . . .



The Collini Case is a masterful court room drama that will have readers on the edge of their seats from start to finish.

From the Back Cover:

'Meticulously constructed, devastating. A miracle of purpose and precision' Financial Times

Fabrizio Collini, a quiet, respectable Mercedes Benz worker, walks into a luxurious Berlin hotel, kills a man in cold blood and waits for the police.

Taking the case is young attorney Caspar Leinen: he knows a not-guilty verdict will make his name. But too late he discovers that the victim - a popular industrialist - is known to him.

Caught in a professional and personal dilemma, Leinen is encouraged by others to give up the case. His reputation, career and even friendships are at stake.

But when he makes a shocking discovery it eclipses his own fears and hints at a terrible truth at the heart of modern Germany . . .

'A gem - sly, trenchant and provocative, none of its conclusions foregone' John O'Connell, Guardian

'I thoroughly enjoyed it'Mark Lawson, Radio 4

'How it should be done' Metro

'Excellent, tense, taut, disturbing'Scotsman

'A masterful tale' Stylist
