The Exiled. Anna Fekete 3


When Anna returns to the Balkan town of her birth, she is caught up in the refugee crisis spreading like wildfire across Europe.

Anna Fekete will spend the summer relaxing in a small Serbian town in the region of her birth. While celebrating the local wines, Anna’s purse is stolen. It doesn’t take long to find the thief – dead on the riverbank. The local police are reluctant to conduct a proper investigation so Anna takes matters into her own hands. The trail of clues unexpectedly leads Anna to her own family and closely guarded secrets concealing a horrendous travesty of justice. As layer upon layer of corruption, deceit and guilt are revealed, Anna is caught up in the refugee crisis. While Anna is in the centre of the global tragedy, her heart is shaken by a threat directed straight at the core of her existence: her family.

A titanic wave of refugees. A murder intertwined with corruption. Can Anna solve a terrifying case that has become personal?
