thor of The Swallows of Kabul.Frankfurt MD Kurt Krausmann is devastated by his wife's suicide. Unable to make sense of what happened, Kurt agrees to join his friend Hans on a humanitarian mission to the Comoros. But, sailing down the Red Sea, their boat is boarded by Somali pirates and the men are taken hostage.The arduous journey to the pirates' desert hideout is only the beginning of Kurt's odyssey.
