In a remote area of Northern Kenya, activist Tessa Quayle is found brutally murdered. Tessa's companion, a doctor, appears to have fled the scene, and all the evidence points to a crime of passion. Members of the British High Commission in Nairobi assume that Tessa's widower, their mild-mannered and unambitious colleague Justin Quayle, will leave the matter to them. Haunted by remorse and jarred by rumors of his late wife's infidelities, Quayle surprises everyone by embarking on a personal odyssey that will take him across three continents. Using his privileged access to diplomatic secrets, Justin risks his own life and will stop at nothing to expose the truth--a conspiracy more far-reaching and deadly than Quayle could ever have imagined

Domésticas maids - a comedy ( visu )
2 editions published in 2003 in German and Portuguese and held by 16 libraries worldwide
In Brasilien gibt es so etwas wie ein unsichtbares zweites Land, jenes der Domésticas, der Hausangestellten. Sie heissen Cida, Roxanne, Quitéria oder Raimunda und sind tagaus tagein damit beschäftigt, anderen den Haushalt zu besorgen und das Haus sauber zu halten. Alle träumen sie von einer glücklichen Heirat, einem besseren Mann oder einer Karriere als Mannequin. Domésticas ist nun nicht etwa ein dokumentarischer Report über Hausangestellte, es ist vielmehr ein schmissiger Spielfilm voller Witz und Humor, der für einmal ganz einfach Menschen hinter den Kulissen einer lateinamerikanischen Grossstadt zu Hauptfiguren macht. Es ist eine Komödie mit hervorragenden SchauspielerInnen, die so echt wirken, dass man mitunter das Gefühl bekommt, sie alle seien längst wieder in den Küchen am Putzen. Es ist auch ein Film voll kleiner Hoffnungen aus dem Alltag
