Book Description
Why does a blonde commit suicide off a bridge in Luxembourg? Whose telephone number is on a pink piece of crumpled paper? Who is the girl in the porn film?

Jason Evans seeks the solution whilst on holiday visiting his brother Shaun in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Undercover Detective Ernie Meyer and his assistant Gendarme Tammy Henckels are hot on the trail.

What is the meaning of an unusual tattoo? Who is the old man in a nursing home in Berlin? Why is a trip to Frankfurt so important? What is the secret language on the letter? Why is a Luxembourg tour guide involved?

Luxembourg & The Jenisch Connection is David Robinson’s first fictional novel which visits the seedy exploitive world of cabaret bars, the Luxembourg State secret police and the tunnels of the former fortress to uncover a secret that’s been dormant for nearly sixty years.

REVIEW:

This is a ‘whodunit’ or detective novel that’s quite different from your traditional Agatha Christie yarn. Admittedly, there is a dead body to begin withwell, almost to begin withbecause we get a glimpse of an attractive girl from Eastern Europe before she hurls herself from a Luxembourg bridge. David Robinson, however, has touched on a perennial problem that seems to haunt Luxembourgsuicideand in so doing weaves a tale that uncovers the plight of many a girl from Eastern Europe who is drawn to the promising glitter of wealth in the west, with a strand going back to the Nazi occupation of Luxembourg. And who better than David Robinson to bring together such strands in the cosmopolitan setting of Luxembourg, in view of the comprehensive knowledge and experience he has of that city, as reflected in his  recent guide An Expat's Life, Luxembourg & The White Rose, also published by iUniverse Inc.
