Author Dirk Trost was born in Duisburg in 1957. Even as a young boy he spent his summer holidays in East Frisia, browsing the adventure stories of Enid Blyton, Erich Kaestner and – on long winter evenings – the “forbidden” mystery books of his grandfather, who thought they were securely hidden in the back of the closet. What could be a more logical result than writing his own adventure story – or, even better, his own whodunit?

His desire to write brought the successful series of novels about Jan de Fries and his dog Motte to life. But that doesn’t mean that the author only has crime stories in mind – there’s romance and emotions, as well, and his new novel “Tango in Lissabon” is there to prove it.
