Sample text

Eine Gänsehaut zog sich über Alessios Unterarme und richtete die feinen dunklen Härchen auf. Morgen würde er wieder bei seiner Freundin in Rom sein, und dann gehörte diese bizarre Szenerie der Vergangenheit an. �Sechs Mal kauen«, wies ihn sein Gegenüber an, dabei zeigte er auf das Stück Rinderfilet, das Alessio sich gerade in den Mund schob. Seiner Freundin Emilia hatte er erzählt, dass er nach München zum Oktoberfest fahre. Wenn sie wüsste, wie er sich sein Geld verdiente, würde sie ihn ohne Zögern verlassen.

Jetzt stell dir mal vor, er hat sich immer mal einen Stricher ins Haus geholt. « �Ist auch egal. Gehen wir davon aus, dass er gelegentlich auch mal Sex brauchte. Und das nicht mit seinem Kotlieferanten. Also, ein anderer Stricher dringt nachts in die Villa ein, bringt Lothar Senner um, weil er weiß, dass Alessio da ist, dem man die Tat in die Schuhe schieben kann. Motiv: Eifersucht? Rache? « Alfred nickte. « Alfred streckte seinen Rücken durch, verbeugte sich vor Sam und ließ ihm den Vortritt zurück in den Vernehmungsraum.

Wollte er vielleicht gestern doch mehr von dir? «, fragte Sam weiter. « �Der Kerl lügt doch«, warf Alfred ein. »Natürlich wollte er mehr, und dann hast du ihm mit diesem Säbel den Kopf abgehackt. « �Ich werde nichts mehr sagen, wenn dieses Arschloch weiter mit im Raum ist«, platzte Alessio heraus. Sam sah nur noch aus dem Augenwinkel einen Schatten auf den Tisch zukommen, dann hatte sich der schwere Alfred schon auf den jungen Italiener gestürzt. Er rutschte über den Tisch und brachte den Stuhl, auf dem Alessio saß, zu Fall.
