Elsa Kreiss returns. New career. Same kriminals. Break out the whip!
From spanking bad men to arresting them, Elsa Kreiss’s life takes a sharp turn from enforcing the rules of her dungeon to enforcing the rules of law. She sought a safer career, a way to help others after the kidnapping of her younger brother by a child predator. However, being a police officer in Berlin was anything but safe. An unsolved case of three missing girls from Charlottenburg pulls her mentor, Kommissar Joseph Heinz, back into the dark abyss just as love finds him. While he searches for a killer, she fights an attraction to a very bad boy. Lukas Trommler is everything she likes in a man; cocky, confident, and hot. An art buyer at a local gallery, Lukas exudes culture with an edge of danger. He invites her into his world where she comes face to face with a familiar monster, Yuri Ivchencko, one of the most powerful and wealthiest men in the world with ties to the Russian mafia. His obsession with the sick and twisted side of human nature expressed in art offends Elsa, who doesn’t hesitate to say so. Her outburst lands her squarely on his radar.
Gregor Koslov was sold at a young age to an extremist Orthodox religious order. He spends his days laboring, and his nights in supplication. Now a young man, his first encounter with the opposite sex turns deadly. Fleeing the scene of the crime, he finds himself near-starving on the docks of Riga, Latvia where he’s taken aboard a commercial shipping vessel - the Vledelets - belonging to a rich and powerful Russian, his life once again in the hands of others.
Now in Berlin, Koslov is questioned by Heinz, and his partner, Detective Birgitta Mahler, about his association with one of the missing girls, Liliya Avilova. Suspicious, they follow him to a manor house on Baumgartenstrasse, and discover a familiar art gallery delivery truck out front.
On the other side of town, Officer Elsa Kreiss receives a note threatening to reveal the secret of her past career to her captain if she does not come immediately to 1211 Baumgartenstrasse. The note is signed by none other than Yuri Ivchencko! Their worlds are about to collide, and not everyone will survive. Can Elsa trust Lukas or is he far more dangerous than she imagines? What does Ivchencko want of her, and how is he connected to Koslov and Lukas? Who is the killer, and who will be killed? Time is running out, and Elsa must embrace her inner dominatrix to save her friends and family.
