FARCRY - Blutige
Diamanten (in German; means 'Bloody Diamonds' in the meaning
of 'blood-stained') is a war tale of the cruelties happening right
now in Central Africa.
The young vet Paula
travels through the civil-war-ridden Central Africa when her plane
crashes after an attack. Unknown to her there is a package on the
plane which brings troups of cruel mercenaries to her heels, hunting
her like an animal.
But Paula, a lady with a dark past herself, had
once a special mentor, Zam, the same CIA-instructor Jack Carver
had in Götterdämmerung.
Now the hunted turns into a cunning predator herself...
While FARCRY - Götterdämmerung
tells the story of Jack Carver as it has been in the first game,
I used another protagonist here.
FARCRY 2 - Blutige Diamanten doesn't retell the game's story
but provides the prequel. Actually my novel ends excactly where
the game begins.
What Idid here was enriching the background of
that Central African War
topic. I did a lot of research on the cruelties of war and war-crimes
in several countries and put them into this novel. It is not without
coincidence that my protagonist Paula suffered from a brutall rape,
which inevitably becomes her driving force...
To deal with those topics dates back to my university
studys of literature: In American and British war
literature as well as in several Native American, New Zealandian
and Australian Native literature there is an open style of saying
things... I prefer that rather to closing the eyes.
