About Dark Dreams (from the publisher): Jana and Sofia were best friends as schoolmates in communist Czechoslovakia. Jana’s a judge’s daughter, was prudent; Sofia, impetuous. Now, Jana, who entered the Czechoslovakian police force, has risen to the rank of commander in the post-communist country of Slovakia, based in its capital, Bratislava, a crossroads of Central Europe.
Sofia, formerly a fiercely independent political reformer, is now a member of parliament and is having a scandalous affair. When she finds herself in a political predicament, she appeals to her old friend for help.
One night, Jana returns home to find an enormous diamond suspended from a string in her living room. A fabulous gift? Or, for a police officer, a trap? Can Sofia be implicated somehow?
The search for answers leads Jana across Europe to unravel am international criminal conspiracy that has perpetrated multiple murders in Nepal, India, Switzerland, Hungary, and Bratislava itself and threatens Jana’s career, family and life.
