Reading in German About the book Graubünden politician Franziska Padrun is hit by a car in Zurich following a TV interview and dies from her injuries. She campaigned for years against the building of a convention centre on the Motta Lischana in the Engadin valley. The journalist Flurina Filli does not believe it was an accident. She is convinced that AlpinaInvest, which is financing the centre, is involved in the politician’s death. Her findings lead her to the Engadin valley where she spent the first ten years of her life. Her suspicions are confirmed. It seems that AlpinaInvest is prepared to go to any lengths to remove anything or anyone that gets in the way of building the centre. However, Flurina’s past soon catches up with her and her nightmares become reality. About the Author Sabina Altermatt was born in Chur in 1966 and grew up there.
