By Leo P. Ard

"Das Revier" ist eine Metropole des Verbrechens - das weiß guy durch TV-Polizisten wie Haferkamp, Schimanski, Balko und Harry & Toto. Und durch meterhohe Schlagzeilen in der Boulevardpresse wie zu den "Mafia-Morden in Duisburg". Dabei ist der "Ruhri an sich" eine absolut friedfertige Gattung, die nur in Ausnahmefällen zu Schrotgewehr, Eispickel oder Pflanzengift greift. Selbstverständlich nur aus solch edlen Motiven wie Eifersucht, Gier und Rache.

Leo P. Ard und Reinhard Junge, die mit dem Krimi "Das Ekel von Datteln" Geschichte geschrieben haben, zeigen mit ihren Crime-Storys, dass der größte Ballungsraum Deutschlands zu Recht "Europäische Kulturhauptstadt 2010" geworden ist. Nirgends wird subtiler, heimtückischer und niveauvoller gemordet als zwischen stillgelegten Zechen, modernen Technologieparks und idyllischen Schrebergärten.
