Inspector Barlach has a year to live, but he's not going quietly

When Inspector Barlach notices that a successful Swiss surgeon bears a striking resemblance to an infamous Nazi war criminal, a suspicion begins to gnaw away at him - could they be one and the same person? Determined to expose the monster behind the surgeon's mask, the ailing inspector checks himself into the doctor's exclusive clinic. But all does not go to plan, and soon Barlach realizes that he is at the mercy of his own prey. Will he find a way out before it's too late?

Suspicion is a dark mystery about a dying man's struggle to destroy a wickedness lurking in plain sight.

Friedrich Durrenmatt (1921-1990) was a Swiss author and dramatist, most famous for his plays The Visit and The Physicists, which earned him a reputation as one of the greatest playwrights in the German language. He also wrote four highly regarded crime novels - The Pledge, The Judge and His Hangman, Suspicion and The Execution of Justice, all of which will be published by Pushkin Vertigo.
