Out of Anger
Katarzyna Bonda

Do you think anger is not enough of an excuse to kill? Revenge? Greed? Wounded pride? Unrequited love? Or perhaps simply… anger? What exactly prompted the perpetrator to reach for a gun at the Warszawa Royal casino? And who pulled the trigger? Detective Jakub Sobieski is looking for answers. Out of Anger – a gripping detective story by Katarzyna Bonda! There have been quite a few changes in Jakub Sobieski's life. He has given up on the idea of returning to service and is now setting up a detective agency. Ada Kowalczyk also resigned from working in the police and decided to pursue a career of a prosecutor. Their paths cross at the very first of Sobieski’s cases, in which they are to investigate the murder of Mariusz Hussakowski, shot in a popular casino twenty years prior. A croupier, Aneta Bulandra, was convicted of the crime. For almost two decades she claimed to be innocent. Now she has decided to seek compensation for being falsely convicted and, as a result, spending eighteen years in prison. She wants detective Jakub Sobieski to help her plead her case. Sobieski enters a world where money, politics and crime form one tangled web. Soon the detective finds out that the people involved in the events that took place years ago – witnesses to the crime and former owners of the Warsaw Royal – are not willing to reveal any new details. They are deceitful, continue to conceal crucial facts and provide false information. It is hard to tell whether they want to uncover the truth or merely use Sobieski to settle their shady business. The detective begins his pursuit after the murderer. But time is not his ally, and soon there are new victims. Who will benefit from their death? Why did Hussakowski die? What did his wife really see and why did she accuse Aneta? The author offers her readers a slimy, dirty detective story. You will not be able to put it down! In the second volume of the series (after By a Hair’s Breadth), detective Jakub Sobieski is not less intriguing than the mysteries he solves. Katarzyna Bonda at her peak!

By a Hair’s Breadth
Katarzyna Bonda


There is no such thing as a beautiful crime. There are only beautiful victims. Katarzyna Bonda launches a new series of crime novels! She sets off with a cruel crime involving beautiful young women who lose their lives. Former police officer Jakub Sobieski steps in and conducts his own informal investigation. He will do anything to catch the perpetrator. The trails lead him to an unsolved case from years ago. Have the dark desires of the murderer made him kill again? One thing is certain – the ex-cop will come face to face with accumulated evil! Will the truth come to light? Find out for yourself! „By a Hair’s Breadth” – the first novel in the new series featuring detective Jakub Sobieski.
Kabaty. A housing estate located in one of the districts of Warsaw; its southern border runs along the Kabacki Forest. It is where the police find a battered body of a young woman. Further gruesome discoveries follow: one more corpse is discovered nearby. It looks like the circumstances surrounding the death of Sapiega sisters were quite dramatic. Soon the investigators come across a lock of blond hair tied up with a green ribbon, which definitely did not belong to the murdered women. Is it a harbinger of future crimes?
When yet another woman is killed, every doubt is dispelled: The killer, hailed by the media as “The Reaper from Kabaty”, is still active. Former police officer Jakub Sobieski and aspirant Ada Kowalczyk, who grabs every opportunity in pursuit of her promotion, go into action outside of formal investigation. The duo soon discovers that the murderer evokes terror especially among female employees of escort agencies. It seems that the Reaper chooses his victims from among prostitutes.
Jakub and Ada infiltrate the milieu of luxury escort agencies offering “exclusive line” sex services – that is, the most unusual ones. Sobieski quickly realizes that the law enforcement environment and the criminal underworld are interlinked and it is difficult to discern who plays for the “good” team. By asking uncomfortable questions, he draws the attention of people who will stop at nothing to retain power and position. Will the young detective succeed in tracking down the murderer before another woman loses her life?
„By a Hair’s Breadth” is a flesh and blood crime story – literally! Cleverly constructed plot makes the book unputdownable. Katarzyna Bonda dives deep into the mind of a madman and ruthless murderer, exploring his terrifying, hedonistic fantasies. Why does the perpetrator mutilate the dead bodies of the girls? What message does he want to convey? And can a human being be inherently evil? „By a Hair’s Breadth” is an extremely engrossing story focusing on the very thin line between fascination and obsession.
