The Book Publisher's Son

“A finely paced and compelling mystery thriller set against the troubles of traditional publishing during the dawn of digitization.”

Amazon Stars Rating 4.9/5.0 (17 Reviews)

Johannes Prittmann's book publishing business is in trouble. The ageing owner has badly misjudged the force and speed of digitization. However, his still successful firm has a reputation to be proud of – but only because he was able to cover up many problems with shady political and financial deals in the past. And by playing his cards close to his chest. Now, he is dying and has no successor. On no account does he want to sell out to a competitor, nor does he trust his playboy second son, Lukas, to run the business. But he has to move fast. His ceditors are closing in on him. His only option is to swallow his pride and recall his eldest son, Tom, who renounced his heritage many years before and has built a new life as a banking consultant in South Africa. Tom agrees to take a leave of absence to rescue the ailing company. But he is in for some unpleasant surprises. Almost immediately, he finds himself confronted with a nightmare of intrigue, treachery and a conspiracy within his family and, on the outside, with Big Publishing planning to force a takeover. But, for him, he is determined not to go back on his promise to his dying father — even though his chances of saving the firm are minimal.

“A finely paced and compelling mystery thriller set against the troubles of traditional publishing during the dawn of digitization.”
