Eine Serie von Todesfällen hält San Francisco in Atem. Ein Toter nach dem anderen wird bei Fort Point an Land gespült. Augenscheinlich soll es sich um Selbstmörder handeln, die von der Golden Gate Bridge gesprungen sind. Detektiv David Connor stellt sich die Frage, ob es sich wirklich um Suizide handelt. Als sein Bruder plötzlich verschwindet und er auf einen gefälschten Abschiedsbrief stößt, verdichtet sich sein Verdacht. Voller Unruhe begibt er sich zur Brücke und sucht nach seinem Bruder. Dabei trifft er Kenneth Dreyfuss, den drogenabhängigen Sohn des Hoteliers und Antiquitätenfreaks Brian. Auch Kenneth will sich von der Brücke stürzen - für ihn gibt es keine Perspektiven. Connor verhindert den Suizid und erfährt dabei, dass sein Bruder ein Geschäftspartner von Brian Dreyfuss war und dass dieser zum Suizid getrieben wurde. Aber von wem?

Thomas Schmidt
Der II. Weltkrieg ist vorüber. Die Kinder entdecken ihre Heimatstadt Torgau als Abenteuerspielplatz wieder. Thomas Schmidt schildert detailgetreu die wahren Erlebnisse der Jagd nach den vermeintlichen Schätzen. »Was meine Heimatstadt Torgau anbetrifft, ist dort der II. Weltkrieg in gewissem Sinne vergraben worden. Die Russen marschierten zum Kriegsende 1945 aus dem Osten und die Amerikaner aus westlicher Richtung auf die Stadt zu. Zwischendrin befanden sich noch Teile der deutschen Wehrmacht wie Korn, das jeden Moment zwischen zwei Mühlsteine geraten konnte. Man plante einen Stellungskrieg gegen die beiden Armeen wie Don Quichotte seinen Kampf gegen die Windmühlenflügel. Viele Punkte in der Stadt und am Stadtrand, auch im gesamten Kreisgebiet, waren für die Errichtung von »Barrikaden gegen den Feind« auserkoren worden. Nach dem strategisch wichtige Bauwerke, wie zum Beispiel die Brücken über die Elbe, sinnloser Weise zerstört waren, begann die Flucht der deutschen Militärs, eines zum Rückzug gezwungenen Wehrmachtsrestes. Übriggeblieben sind Teile einer soldatenlosen Kriegsmaschine, die man noch Jahre nach dem Krieg wie »Freilichtmuseen« in den Wäldern wiederfand, oder eine, die unter den eigenen Füßen buchstäblich begraben lag. Kriegsgerät, Sprengstoff und Munition hat man »auf der Flucht« in Seen und Flüsse versenkt, in den meisten Fällen aber in flache Gräben geworfen und dürftig mit Erde überdeckt unter der Maßgabe, dass »Gras über die Sache wachse«. »In den Baumwipfeln singt die Amsel, und der Buntspecht schlägt seinen Takt, Lerchen hüpfen futtersuchend im Gras, darunter ist der II. Weltkrieg verscharrt.«

Swords and Shields. Faith and Magic.

Grab your weapons and prepare, for the enemy is on the move.

High fantasy and mighty conflicts go hand-in-hand. In great wars, armies rise to fight evil hordes and heroes struggle to push beyond their imperfections to save the day. These stories include more than just epic landscapes and charactersãthey also feature epic battles.

Imagine a doctor struggling to identify the spy who has infiltrated his companys ranks and poisoned his colleagues or a boy suspected of murder by a king yet protected by a princess as he helps her father against his own people. Imagine a butcher discovering that hes called to lead an uprising, or a First Born knowing that she must betray her own in order to save humanity.

The possibilities are endless, but at the heart they have this in common: soldiers¾ordinary and otherwise_struggling against extraordinary odds to survive the day. They must withstand dark magic, dodge enemy blades, and defy the odds to survive SHATTERED SHIELDS.
