Read full description of the books Bitterer Schleier: (A Bitter Veil):

Alles beginnt mit einer Zeile aus einem persischen Gedicht …
Anna und Nouri, beide Studenten an der Universität in Chicago, verlieben sich trotz ihres sehr unterschiedlichen kulturellen Hintergrunds ineinander. Anna, die zu ihren Eltern kein besonders inniges Verhältnis hat, ist überglücklich, mit Nouri in sein Heimatland Iran ziehen zu können, wo sie von seiner wohlhabenden Familie mit offenen Armen empfangen wird. Doch was 1978 mit einer glücklichen Ehe beginnt, wird völlig auf den Kopf gestellt, als die Welt durch den Sturz des Schahs und das Entstehen der Islamischen Republik aus den Fugen gerät.
Unter Ayatollah Khomeini und den Republikanischen Gardisten wird das alltägliche Leben immer schwieriger. Anna muss lernen, in einer veränderten Welt voller Beschränkungen, in der die ihr vertrauten, westlichen Verhaltensweisen nicht mehrt toleriert werden, zu bestehen. Willkürliche Verhaftungen und Folter sind an der Tagesordnung. Frauen werden gezwungen, einen Hidschab zu tragen. Und Anna muss erkennen, dass sie nicht mehr frei über ihre Ausreise bestimmen kann.
Als sich die Situation dramatisch zuspitzt, merkt Anna, dass nichts mehr so ist, wie sie dachte, und dass sie niemandem mehr vertrauen kann … nicht einmal ihrem Ehemann.

Read information about the author

Ebook Bitterer Schleier: (A Bitter Veil) read Online! Libby Fischer Hellmann left a career in broadcast news in Washington, DC and moved to Chicago 35 years ago, where she, naturally, began to write gritty crime fiction. Fourteen novels and twenty short stories later, she claims they’ll take her out of the Windy City feet first. She has been nominated for many awards in the mystery writing community and has even won a few.

Her newest work is WAR, SPIES, & BOBBY SOX, a trio of tales set during World War Two at Home. It will be released February, 28, 2017.

Libby began her career as an assistant film editor for NBC News in New York before moving back to DC to work with Robin McNeil and Jim Lehrer at N-PACT, the public affairs production arm of PBS. Retrained as an assistant director when Watergate broke, Libby helped produce PBS’s night-time broadcast of the hearings. She went on to work for public relations firm Burson-Marsteller in Chicago in 1978, where she stayed until she left to found Fischer Hellmann Communications in 1985.

Originally from Washington, D.C.—where, she says, “When you’re sitting around the dinner table gossiping about the neighbors, you’re talking politics”—Libby earned a Masters Degree in Film Production from New York University and a BA in History from the University of Pennsylvania. In addition to writing, multi-talented Libby writes and produces videos, and conducts speaker training programs in platform speaking, presentation skills, media training and crisis communications.

Libby’s best-selling novels have won widespread acclaim since her first novel, AN EYE FOR MURDER, which was nominated for several awards and described by Publisher’s Weekly as “a masterful blend of politics, history, and suspense”.

Libby is known for her portrayal of strong female characters. AN EYE FOR MURDER introduced Ellie Foreman, a video producer and single mother who went on to star in four more novels in a series described by Libby as “a cross between Desperate Housewives and 24.” JUMP CUT, an espionage thriller featuring Ellie and her daughter was released in 2016.

Libby’s second series (Easy Innocence, Doubleback Toxicity, and Nobody's Child) follows Chicago PI Georgia Davis, a no-nonsense hard-boiled detective operating in the Northern suburbs and beyond.

In addition to her popular series, Libby has also written three standalone thrillers in diverse settings and historical periods that demonstrate her versatility as a writer. In SET THE NIGHT OF FIRE, A BITTER VEIL, and HAVANA LOST respectively we meet young activists during the late Sixties, a young American woman who marries and moves to Tehran, and a female Mafia boss who chases power at the expense of love.
