Annelie Wendeberg is a scientist & writer of kick-ass heroines. She has sold more than 700.000 books worldwide. When she's not writing about women who live disguised as men, about girls who jump from airplanes and blow up the global satellite network, Annelie is herding goats, making cheese, and rescuing owls.
Remnants of humanity are scattered high in the mountains, far from the deadly disease that wiped out ten billion lives. While everyone claws for survival, Micka cuts lines and numbers into her skin. The day she decides to press the blade deeper, a stranger steps into her life and makes an offer she finds hard to decline.
Only two people in this world know my name. I am one. The other is believed dead.
Dr Elizabeth Arlington keeps her past buried. But when a woman is killed in a train accident, she falls into old habits and examines the body. All evidence points to murder. Soon, a second victim is found, and a photograph left at the scene incriminates Elizabeth. Now the prime suspect, she must hurry to catch the killer before the police arrest her. But when he strikes again, Elizabeth discovers a terrifying truth.
Coroner Sévère has it all: a beautiful young wife, money, influence, and…secrets…
Not only is a disease slowly crippling him, but his wife, Olivia, is also a former prostitute who used to serve the Chief Magistrate himself — a man with cruel appetites.
Europe, late 19th century. Antibiotics have yet to be invented, and germs take a death toll that lets the number of murders appear negligible. But when a cholera victim is found floating in one of London's drinking water supplies, Dr Anton Kronberg - England's best bacteriologist - is called upon to investigate. He crosses paths with Sherlock Holmes. The detective immediately discovers Kronberg's secret -- a woman masquerading as a man in order to practice medicine -- a criminal deed that could land her in prison for years to come. The two highly analytical minds provoke and annoy each other at once. Eventually, they must team up to unravel a spiderweb of murder, espionage, and bioterrorism that spreads across continents.
The Brothers and Sisters of the Apocalypse aren’t happy with Micka. She’s blown up their satellite network and now passes valuable intel to their fiercest enemy — the Sequencer Council.
But nothing goes as Micka plans, and soon the two most powerful global organisations want her dead.
Lines blur between friend and foe.
And Micka is out of options.
People think I survived. But that’s an illusion.
After two years of hell in prison camp, Micka wants only one thing: To end the Brothers and Sisters of the Apocalypse. She embarks on a race across five thousand kilometres of ice and snow, knowing it’s a suicide mission.
But she has nothing left to lose.
Sixteen-year-old Micka never signed up to be a hero. Yet, here she is – Sequencer’s apprentice and about to march into battle against a terrorist organisation that vowed to wipe humanity off the planet. Or what’s left of it.
She has learned to kill.
Now she must learn that the price of survival can be unbearably high.
Would you kill your father to save the lives of thousands?
Anna Kronberg wakes up with a gun to her head. James Moriarty offers her a single bargain: to develop biological weapons for him, or she and her father will die.
London 1889. A dead man is found floating in the city’s waterworks. Fearing an epidemic, the Metropolitan Police call upon bacteriologist Dr Anton Kronberg to examine the body. All signs point toward cholera having killed the man…but for faint marks around wrists and ankles.

I read "Finding Sara" while flying from Leipzig to Copenhagen and surprised my fellow passengers with outbursts of what the internet community calls "LOL" these days.
Nancy DeMarco has a compelling writing style and I'm impressed how she manages to describe a mentally ill woman in such a way, that the reader can't help but feel for her. And how I felt for her! She pulled me down into the gutters and raised me high up again. Life is a roalercoaster and this book pulls you right into it.
What a ride!
I am Morte
