"Two friends are on their way to Ku Klux Klan meeting taking place deep in the forest. It’s just a shame that the instructions in the e-mail were so unclear…
The events in this book are based on a true story.
In the early noughties, it emerged that two German police officers had been members of a Ku Klux Klan spin-off group operating in the German state of Baden-Württemberg. During questioning as part of a later police investigation, the two officers refuted accusations of racism, claiming that they had joined the Klan solely to meet new people, particularly those of the opposite sex. Whilst under interrogation, they also complained about the Klan’s initiation ceremony, which took place in a forest and was allegedly poorly organised. Both officers were subjected to disciplinary action but, due to their supposed naïveté, they were allowed to keep their jobs in the German police force."
