Downhill: Whatever It Takes by Karlheinz Moll is a thrilling tale of murder and mystery. Kitzbühel, a prominent ski resort, is the scene of a deadly murder when a real estate developer dies of a shooting on a downhill ski run. A politician running for Senate loses his stepson to murder in the Arizona mountains. The Green Hand claims both murders. While Alexander Granger, a BKA operative, and his girlfriend are on holiday, he joins Cynthia Yeow, an Interpol agent in Kitzbühel, in the investigation. Urged to get involved in this investigation, Granger and Cynthia are already working on high-ranking cases. On behalf of the son of the politician, Sam Caffey is looking into the past. An attempt is made on his life when he finds the evidence he seeks. On the trail of The Green Hand, Cynthia and Alexander find themselves in Munich and London as they race to find out who is behind it all.

In a story spread across Europe and America, Downhill: Whatever It Takes by Karlheinz Moll is an exciting thriller with a unique plot. At the start, two seemingly unrelated incidents set the scene. However, it soon becomes clear that they are related, and the story takes us on a journey across the countries in a thrilling plot with plenty of twists, turns, and tragedy as it spirals toward the conclusion. The characters were real people with real lives, easy to relate to, and likable. The plot is action-packed and filled with danger as the detectives follow the trail in a story written in descriptive but easy language. Once you start this story, you won't want to put it down, so settle in for a few hours of undisturbed hair-raising thrills.
