Blum's found five pounds of top-quality Peruvian cocaine in a suit-case. His adventure started in Malta where he was trying to sell porn magazines, the latest in a string of dodgy deals that never seem to come off. A left-luggage ticket from the Munich train station leads him to the cocaine. Now his problems begin in earnest. Pursued by the police the luckless Blum falls prey to the frenzied paranoia of the cocaine addict and dealer. His desperate and clumsy search for a buyer takes him from Munich to Frankfurt, and finally to Ostend. This is a fast-paced thriller written with acerbic humour, a hardboiled evocation of drug-fuelled existence and a penetrating observation of those at the edge of German society.

Jorg Fauser, born in 1944 in Germany, was a novelist, essayist and journalist. Having broken his dependency on heroin at the age of thirty he spent much of the rest of his working life dependent on alcohol. He nevertheless produced three highly successful novels including The Snowman and much praised essays of literary criticism. On July 16th 1987 he had been celebrating his forty third birthday. At dawn, instead of going back to his home in Munich, he wandered on to a stretch of motorway, by chance or by choice, and was struck down by a truck. He died instantly. Translator of The Snowman."
