Description

Vienna Blood is the story of Sharkey, a tabloid columnist, and Leo Detmers, a man he once drank with for a few unmemorable hours. Leo was a lone-eagle commodities broker whose sinking heart appeared to have hit rock bottom. As things turned out, it had another six feet to go. Now Leo is dead - a statistic, the victim of a seemingly random traffic accident in the city's Prater park. But Leo's pregnant widow, Petra, wants Sharkey to look into what she believes was a calculated murder.Beginning with a strange equation scribbled on the wall of Leo's apartment, Sharkey peels back the layers of one man's life and death, each revealing a larger and more chilling design. Who was Leo Detmers? What agonizing truth did he stumble across that led him to break off conjugal relations with his alluring wife? And who - or what - is "Zak"? Puzzling coincidences linking Leo and Petra long before their marriage are Sharkey's first keys to a vast and perilous secret: a clandestine program organized by a consortium of biotech companies and private hospitals applying the latest genetic engineering and in vitro technologies to grotesque and far-reaching effect.It doesn't take long for Sharkey to realize that he's in over his head, party to a conspiracy with roots in Vienna's dark past that could change the world forever. For Sharkey, there's no stopping now. And no turning back...
