    Ihre Augen brannten. Die Hände zitterten. Sie wagte kaum zu atmen.
    Ihr Puls raste. Schweiß sammelte sich auf ihrer Stirn, tropfte von
    dem hochroten Gesicht. Ihr Rücken wurde klatschnass.
    Noch einmal wollte sie es versuchen ...


    Wer unterschätzt wird, hat leichtes Spiel, und
    zum Schluss gibt es eine Überraschung.

    Krimigeschichten verlaufen anders als vermutet,
    Erziehungsversuche erzeugen Gänsehaut, und
    manchmal bleibt das Lachen im Halse stecken.

    Opfer rechnen mit Tätern ab,
    eine Zugreise gibt Rätsel auf, und
    ein Schuss verändert ein Leben – in diesen
    spannenden, dramatischen,
    satirischen oder humorvollen
    Kurzgeschichten von Angelika Stephan.

    Geschichten, die im Gedächtnis bleiben.
