Temptation

The exquisite cuisine of the Orient, exciting characters, the race for advancements in the field of biotechnology – those are the ingredients Florian Harms uses to concoct his sensuous and extremely gripping novel.

In Zurich, private investigator Calanda is hired to find Bernhard Lieblig – by a Swiss food giant conducting research into artificial flavors. August Lieblig is looking for his missing father when his plane crashes over the North African desert. What is Bernhard Lieblig’s mission and why has he disappeared? And what does the new flavor profile the Swiss company believes to have identified have to do with all of this?

In his novel, Florian Harms, renowned expert on North Africa and the Middle East, weaves the mysticism of the Orient into a modern crime story – an opulent and evocative tale that paints the reader a sensuous picture of the world of pleasure and temptations.
