What happens when Berlin's premiere dominatrix trades her whip for a badge? She discovers she cannot escape her past. Feisty Elsa Kreiss enters the police academy, expecting her world to be safer for herself and her younger brother. Instead, it only becomes more dangerous!

A new case involving three missing girls pulls her mentor, Kommissar Joseph Heinz, back into the dark abyss of child abductions and human trafficking just as he realizes he’s in love with his partner. While he searches for a killer, Elsa fights her attraction to a sexy bad boy, Lukas Trommler. An art buyer at a local gallery, Lukas exudes culture with an edge of danger, yet there is more to the man than meets the eye. Trommler invites her into his world where she comes face to face with Yuri Ivchencko, one of the wealthiest men in the world with ties to the Russian mafia. When Elsa goes missing, Heinz abandons his current case to rescue his protégé. Doing so brings him face to face with a man from his past, the one he believes responsible for the cold case that haunts him still. The more he digs for clues to Elsa’s whereabouts, the more evidence is revealed linking the three missing girls to his own cold case.

The stakes are high as Heinz races to save the Elsa and to find the missing girls now at the mercy of a sadistic Russian billionaire—before it’s too late!

Screenplay/Book Adaptation Needed

When the walls come tumbling down…

Herman Faust is the no-nonsense Director of the LandesKriminalamt (LKA) and long-time friend of Kommissar Joseph Heinz. His career spans thirty years, and he is now on the cusp of retirement. Although usually cool and in control, a man of dry wit, it wasn't always so for Faust. With experience, came wisdom, hard won wisdom for which he paid a high price.

1988:  For rookie officer Herman Faust, a routine, late night traffic stop turns into the apprehension of a high priority defector, one with ties to the Soviet bio-weapons program Obolensk. After bringing the woman and her brother in for questioning, the man disappears, and the woman is found inside her holding cell…dead. The American CIA intervenes, confiscating the woman’s corpse and demanding answers even as more bodies pile up around them. Faust has none to offer, but begins receiving anonymous calls threatening his family, and his own life. As clues come to light linking his superior, Captain Rolf Rheinhardt, to the woman, and to a Soviet plot to launch a biological weapon on the American Embassy, Faust knows he must risk all to stop the deadly pathogen from being released on innocent civilians. The stability of West Berlin is at risk, and if Faust fails to solve the case, it will be war! This is his story. This is the making of Herman Faust.  Watch the trailer on YouTube here:
