The diver

Written by

An unknown elderly man orders the detective Chris Pappas to inquire about a young German woman, Eva Dempling.

Chris will follow her in an Hamburg hotel where she meets her lover. The next morning, the unknown man who had called Chris, is found dead, hanged in the room Eva spent the night.

Chris follows Eva in Greece, back to his home village. She is dead when he finds out that the unknown elderly man was Anton Rot, the writer of the book “The Diver”. His son is a doctor who cares of children with serious health problems. He had co-starred in an amateur film with Eva Dempling.

Why does a short movie drag everyone into the cruel secrets of the past?

The detective must watch the movie in order to revive the cruelest truth.

A stunning novel where the meaning of good and evil is mixed and self-sacrifice is parallel to murder.
