Pagten The Pact

Ravn #5

In The Pact, Ravn puts it all on the line in order to find out who killed his girlfriend Eva in their home five years ago. New clues lead Ravn to an aging killer-for-hire and a group of corrupt police officers with ties to a terrifyingly influential person in the highest echelon of society. But it isn’t till Ravn forms a pact with the gangster kingpin Kaminsky that he gets the crucial knowledge and connections that will allow him to bring Eva’s killer to justice. But everything has a price. And in this case, the price is 71 million missing Danish kroner.

The Pact is the fifth installment in Michael Katz Krefeld’s bestselling Ravn series, and the novel wherein the mystery of Ravn’s girlfriend’s murder is solved.
