starvation ist bekanntlich der beste Koch. Der zweitbeste ist ein chinese language namens Wang Li. Das glaubt zumindest der Wiener Gourmetkritiker Xaver Ypp, weshalb er auch sehr verärgert ist, als es plötzlich heißt, Wang Li habe das Land verlassen. Und Ypp hat noch mehr Probleme: Sein Chef hält ihn schon lange für zu konservativ und drückt ihm zu allem Überfluss noch die Ausbildung eines pubertierenden Geschmacksgenies aufs Auge. Schlechte Karten für Ypp, der bald auch noch Opfer eines Überfalls wird: Als er die Probe eines ungewöhnlichen Stückchens Fleisch aus Wang Lis ehemaligem eating place untersuchen lassen will, beginnt die Angelegenheit vom Kuriosen ins Kriminelle abzugleiten und nimmt dabei immer rasanter Schussfahrt auf ...
Nach seinen kultigen Erfolgskrimis in den 90er Jahren hat Kurt Bracharz sich mit seinem neuen Krimi viel Zeit gelassen - doch das Warten hat sich definitiv gelohnt: angenehm pikant, gewürzt mit einer ordentlichen Prise Nervenkitzel und in typisch amerikanischer Krimimanier: hartgesotten.

Der zwölfte Fall ist für Lisa Nerz eine besondere Herausforderung. Ein berühmter Koch ist verschwunden. Im alten Rosensteintunnel taucht eine grausige Leiche auf. Lisa begibt sich zuerst on-line auf Spurensuche. Sie soll die Identität der individual herausbekommen, die im Netz ein anonymes Veganblog verfasst. Denn die Stuttgarter Staatsanwaltschaft hegt einen schrecklichen Verdacht.

Schnell merkt sie: In den sozialen Medien ist das Thema Ernährung sehr präsent. Da tobt der reinste Glaubenskrieg um die Frage, was once wir essen sollten, vielstimmig, aggressiv und giftig. Doch um das weite Feld der Spielarten zwischen veganer Lebensweise und politischem Veganismus kennenzulernen, muss Lisa Nerz die Lederjacke ausziehen, den laptop ausschalten und sich in die Schlacht zwischen Omnivoren und Veganern begeben. Und wieder zeigt sich: Es ist alles ganz anders, als gedacht.

»Lehmann legt ihre Bücher an wie Backsteine, die gefälligst Fensterscheiben zu zerschmettern haben. Nerz ist provokant, reizbar und schredderzüngig, trotz ihrer Schläue agiert sie reflexhaft antiautoritär. Allerdings schreibt Christine Lehmann nie in zittrigen Tönen deprimierter sozialer Schadensvermessung. Die Streitlust von Lisa Nerz drückt sich in der Dynamik, Frechheit, Wendigkeit ihrer Sprache bestens aus.« Stuttgarter Zeitung

»Das tolle an Lisa-Nerz-Romanen ist, dass ich in jedem einzelnen so viel über unsere Welt lerne, wobei zugleich das Gefühl vorherrscht, ›bloß‹ locker unterhalten zu werden. In dieser Hinsicht leisten Christine Lehmanns Krimis bei aller Flapsigkeit genau das, used to be zu den vornehmsten Aufgaben von Literatur gehört: Sie beleuchten ein Stück Wahrheit. Und sei es nur die, dass Entscheidungen rund ums Essen folgenreicher sind, als wir uns tagtäglich klarmachen. Guten Appetit!« Else Laudan

»Auch diese waghalsige Geschichte hat Lehmann mit handfestem Humor grundiert, sie ist frisch, ruppig, gelegentlich schrill, stets vielschichtig. Unter Veganern wird sie sich damit wohl keine Freunde machen.« Frank Rumpel, CulturMag
