Eine Bewegung. Ein eisiger Luftzug.
Marie hielt den Atem an. Ihr linker Zeh zuckte.
Dort hyperlinks. Dort an der Tür.
Sie warfare nicht mehr allein hier drinnen.«
Winter in Köln: Marie ist dreizehn, Marie liebt ihren Stoffbären und Marie schreibt gerne. Sie erwacht in einem kalten Raum, dessen einziges Fenster zugemauert ist. Ihr Aufbäumen, ihr Widerstand, ihre Fluchtversuche scheitern und schließlich bleiben nur Durst und Kälte und Angst.
Maries Schule in Köln-Brück ist der letzte Ort, an dem sie gesehen wurde.
Die Kripo Köln sucht fieberhaft, die Mutter verzweifelt und WiIla Stark muss tief graben, um die Hoffnung am Leben zu halten.
Doch auch die Zeit der jungen Grazer Polizistin läuft ab und als die Suche nach Marie scheitert, sich alte wie neue Spuren im Schnee verlieren, helfen nur noch Mut und Waghalsigkeit.
