ABOUT THIS BOOK
Based on true events, Cornflower Blue is a tense thriller that explores the troubled legacy of the Bosnian War.
On the night of the eleventh of July, two elite Serbian soldiers are on sentry duty at the Topcider military camp. The next morning, they are found dead. A military court declares them victims of a ritual suicide, and the investigation is closed. But inconsistencies in the official tribunal draw criminologist Milena Lukin to the case. What did the two guardsmen see on that fateful night, a date marking the anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide? Up against a military complex with a history to hide, Milena soon finds herself in grave danger. Meticulously researched and rich in historical detail, Cornflower Blue is a gripping tale that bravely addresses one of the darkest hours in Europe’s recent history.
“An exciting thriller, a story about the worst depths of human nature—but also a clever, nostalgic, loving homage to Belgrade and its inhabitants.”—Der Tagesspiegel, on the German edition
