Was sind die besten Berlin Krimis? Oder die besten Thriller über Berlin?
Vor kurzem war ich zu Besuch in Berlin. Ich habe den Reichstag besichtigt: die Kulisse für meinen Berlin-Roman Blood Summit.
Blood Summit gibt es noch nicht auf Deutsch – ich suche einen Verlag. Aber wenn Sie gern wissen würden, worum es geht, schauen Sie bitte dieses Video an. Und wenn Sie noch mehr Infos möchten, schreiben Sie mir! Oben rechts, “Contact me”. Das geht ganz einfach.
Blood Summit ist ein echter Thriller: viel Blut, viel Action, unterhaltsam und schnell zu lesen. Die perfekte Lektüre, wenn Sie English einigermaßen beherrschen, und auch für Buch- und Lesegruppen gut geeignet.
Happy reading! Viel Vergnügen beim Lesen!
P.S. If you enjoy fresh, original writing, please follow me on Facebook or sign up for e-mail updates (top right – see blue “click here” button). Or you can join my mailing list – I’ll be delighted to give you a free “Hotel Story” to say thanks. My 5 pleasure paths provide a site-map and guide to the more than 300 posts on robertpimm.com.
P.P.S. Thanks to the lovely Sibylle Trost for the video and the lovely Andrea Linecker for teaching me German. Excellent professionals.
P.P.P.S You can get hold of a copy of Blood Summit thus:
(i) go to Amazon.de (or your local Amazon if you live somewhere else). You can order a paperback or download a copy for your Kindle or e-book;
(ii) if you live in Vienna, stroll along to Shakespeare & Company at Sterngasse 2. It’s a terrific bookshop and stocks many other books in addition to Blood Summit;
(iii) come to one of my readings.

I usually have books at my readings (see piano in the picture above) which I will be delighted to sign for you. At the readings, I usually read a couple of chapters and then answer questions; up to now, people have seemed to enjoy them. If you buy a paperback elsewhere and bring it along, I’ll be happy to sign it, too.
(iv) if you want to read the book for free you can take a 30-day trial membership of “Kindle Unlimited” which permits you to read books on Kindle, including Blood Summit, for free. Or you may already be a member of Kindle Unlimited. I’ve been surprised how many readers access the book this way.
Writing a book? See how story ideas and story location come together when I visit the city where my Berlin thriller Blood Summit is set. The visit also unleashed the idea of doing a reading in the Reichstag.
The primary goal of my visit to Berlin was the Reichstag, where much of the novel takes place. It is a sombre building with a tragic history of arson, destruction, occupation and dereliction. In Blood Summit it takes more punishment. Yet on a sunny day it can look quite innocuous:
The lawn in front of the Reichstag suggests accessibility and openness: features of the building which are problematic in “Blood Summit”
I was delighted to meet film maker Sibylle Trost at the Reichstag (click on the link for her website, also available in German). Sibylle, whose documentaries for German TV receive audiences of four million and who also works freelance for companies and others, is a fan of Blood Summit and made a top quality video of my first reading from the book, in Vienna in 2018 (links in bold italics are to other posts on this site).

The US President, British Prime Minister, German Chancellor, Russian President and other G8 leaders are taken hostage by terrorists at a summit in Berlin.
Rescue is impossible.
One after another, hostages are executed at point-blank range, killings streamed live, bodies left on show for fifteen minutes to prove that they are dead.
Then the U.S. President is thrown into the killing chair – and shots ring out.
Who is to blame for this cataclysm? Who can resolve the crisis – against a background of terrorist demands which seem impossible to meet, yet which have demonstrators massing outside the Reichstag to support the hostage-takers? (more…)
