Translated from the back of the book:
"The Terror of Randall Castle
by Jan Christoph Steines
A rocky island near the coast of Cornwall - a castle perched high on a cliff - the Randall family has gathered for the opening of the will left by the late Lord Howard.
In the night suddenly the music of bagpipes can be heard - a scream - and Lord Julian is found stabbed to death in his room.
Again the legendary piper has announced the death of a family member. Soon after there is a second victim. Does someone want to enlarge his part of the heritage, or distract from the clandestine search for the alleged treasure of the castle, or has has the Terror of Randall Castle awoken again?
A Study in Scarlet
by Reinhard Kotz
In an uninhabited house a dead person is found - splattered with blood yet unharmed.
Just by solving the clues the detectives can discern the crime and the identity of the victim. Soon a second name appears, that of the culprit or the next victim?
A revenge long planned threatens to be completed, and without the detectives' knowledge the chase for the murderer is a race against time."
