Die Attentäter

The Assassins

Although they come from totally different backgrounds, Cliff and Alain are fascinated by each other, and Margareta, whom they have known since they were small, has always stood between them. Then Cliff converts to Islam and disappears. When he returns, it soon becomes clear that he is there on an assignment: to plan a “Day of Blood” for IS. Alain wants to save his friend – and the police actually do succeed in preventing the worst, but Cliff and Alain die. Only Margareta will live.

With "The Assassins", Antonia Michaelis offers an unsettling glimpse into the dark abyss of terrorism.
