This is a story about a Croatian family divided in a time of civil conflict. As ethnic tensions escalate into war, Marija returns in confusion to her native Croatia - call it a mid-life crisis. She soon takes up with a young soldier, but her age does not give her the least power over him. On the other side of the world, her estranged father is gearing up to enter the fray, raising the cash to raise an army. Exiled to Argentina, he has been waiting for this moment since 1945. But war is a young man's game, and even his closest comrades cannot be trusted. If the Old Man is to meet his daughter again it will be in a world altered beyond his understanding, where the only soldiers he commands are in his head

Heinrich Glück, Verleger in Wien, lernt die junge, exzentrische Dagmar kennen und lässt sich scheiden, um seine letzten Jahre mit ihr zu verbringen. Immer ausschließlicher ergreift sie Besitz von seiner Existenz. Als er stirbt, soll er endgültig ihr Eigentum werden: Sie schreibt ein Buch über seinen Tod. Kann eine Frau behaupten, die ganze Wahrheit über ihren Mann zu wissen? Der langjährige Verlagslektor jedenfalls weigert sich, Dagmars Buch zu publizieren.

A bomb threat is made at a provincial Austrian village station. But no-one takes it too seriously, not even the police. Then a teacher in the village thinks he recognises his favourite pupil Daniel on a wanted notice in a newspaper. The teacher befriended Daniel when they spent a summer together at his house by the river, but Daniel has been growing increasingly obsessive of late, losing himself in religious and political dogmatism after a trip to Israel. For his teacher, this marks the start of a spiral of introspection and self doubt, reinforced by his inability to feel at home anywhere after spending several years in Istanbul. What's more, he is suddenly swamped by memories of the pivotal moments of his own adolescence, which floor him completely. Was it Daniel's love for Judith and his fascination with an American fire-and-brimstone evangelist who is passing through on his way to Jerusalem or could it have been the complex relationship between the two of them that led the boy astray?
