KRUMNAGEL by Peter Ustinov (hier online bestellen)
Of all the big men in the small Midwest town, Chief of Police Bartram T. Krumnagel was the biggest. A physical
giant with an unbeatable talent for wrongful arrest, he kept the streets safe by shooting on sight. But how
would such a stout defender of American liberty fare on foreign soil?
