Summary
A prescient political and psychological thriller ripped from tomorrow's headlines, by one of Germany's most celebrated contemporary novelists. Part suspenseful thriller, part wickedly effective social satire, "Empty Hearts" is a novel for our times, examining urgent questions of morality, politics, and culture, and presenting a startling vision of a future where empathy is a thing of the past

Summary
Britta runs a successful clinic specializing in suicide prevention, but her legitimate business is connected to a secret operation known as The Bridge, an outfit that supplies terrorist organizations looking to employ suicide bombers. Terrorism almost never takes place without Britta's services--which is why news of a thwarted suicide attack in Leipzig comes as a shock and drives Britta into hiding. On her heels is a new terrorist organization called Empty Hearts, a group unlike any she's encountered before
