The Bentheims of Berlin take in Till Anschütz, an orphan on the run, who quickly befriends 12-year-old Max. The boys are intrigued by the office where Max’s cold, distant father, Xavier Bentheim, writes his horror novels. And when they get up the nerve to explore, Max and Till are truly horrified by what they discover behind a hidden door.…
Till awakens strapped to a gurney. His belly is burning, and a young woman with dead eyes flicks her forked tongue against his face. "We’ve modified you - you’ll like it," a familiar voice purrs.…
Inspector Konstantin Butz discovers the mutilated corpse of a woman; beside her lies a power drill freshly wrenched from her stomach. This latest in a series of connected murders launches Butz on an obsessive search for the killer, but the key could lie hidden with his own girlfriend…Claire Bentheim.

Not for me
I gave up on this book because it doesn't appear to be going anywhere and I have better books waiting. The story rambles like one of those vampire fanfics I used to read back in the day that went on and on with no end in sight. I'm not interested in the characters and the back & forth in the timeline narrative is confusing. Just not enjoying it so not prepared to invest any more time on it. Certainly won't be picking up the sequels. Unfortunately I bought the book more than a year ago so I can't send it back. Even that won't persuade me to read further.
Too long and convoluted.
I made it almost to the end but eventually gave up the will to live!
