Sample text

Sam verwarf jeden vernünftigen Gedanken, wie ein kleines Kind, das intuitiv wusste, dass es sich die Finger an einer heißen Herdplatte verbrennen würde, und trotzdem darauffasste. Er schlich durch die Küche in Richtung des Museumswohnzimmers und orientierte sich von Neuem. Der Lichtkegel, den er gesehen hatte, war ungefähr von der Seite gekommen, wo er sich gerade befand. Wahrscheinlich war der Einbrecher nach oben gegangen. Er wollte gerade zur Treppe schleichen, als plötzlich wie aus dem Nichts jemand vor ihm stand.

Seitdem haben sie sich nicht mehr gesehen. Ihre Sachen liegen noch auf dem Hotelzimmer, wie an dem Tag ihres Verschwindens. « Es musste also erst ein »VIP« verschwinden, bis man sich der Sache annahm, dachte Sam und sah Brenner von der Seite an. �Ich weiß, was Sie jetzt denken, Sam … Wissen Sie, wie viele Menschen in Deutschland, in Europa jährlich verschwinden? Hunderttausende. In Amerika sind es sogar Millionen. Davon bleibt allerdings nur ein geringer Prozentteil für immer verschwunden. « Sam schluckte.

Eine Gänsehaut zog sich über Alessios Unterarme und richtete die feinen dunklen Härchen auf. Morgen würde er wieder bei seiner Freundin in Rom sein, und dann gehörte diese bizarre Szenerie der Vergangenheit an. �Sechs Mal kauen«, wies ihn sein Gegenüber an, dabei zeigte er auf das Stück Rinderfilet, das Alessio sich gerade in den Mund schob. Seiner Freundin Emilia hatte er erzählt, dass er nach München zum Oktoberfest fahre. Wenn sie wüsste, wie er sich sein Geld verdiente, würde sie ihn ohne Zögern verlassen.
