7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking its inspiration from historical fact, Collaborators explores the intense, paradoxical, and ultimately deadly connection between the dissident writer Mikhail Bulgakov and Josef Stalin, centering around a play that Bulgakov was forced to write to commemorate Stalin's sixtieth birthday. As Bulgakov loses himself in a world of secrets, threats, and paradoxes, and begins to fall ill from the kidney disease that would eventually kill him, his feverish dreams of conversations with Stalin become reality in his mind, just as the state's lies become truths in his play. Collaborators is a darkly comic portrait of the impossible choices facing any artist in a dictatorship, and a surreal journey into the imagination of a writer who loses himself in a macabre relationship with the omnipotent subject of his drama

Die drei Freunde Juliet, David und Alex suchen für ihre schicke Yuppi-WG einen Untermieter. Keiner der Bewerber kann es aber dem ziemlich exzentrischen Trio rechtmachen, bis ein junger Mann namens Hugo das höchstpeinliche Verhör cool übersteht. Hugo bezeichnet sich als Schriftsteller, der auf der Suche nach sich selbst ist. Doch schon bald liegt der coole Hugo eiskalt auf dem Bett - gestorben an einer Überdosis Drogen. Das eigentliche Übel befindet sich aber unter dem Bett: ein Koffer randvoll mit Geld. Das Trio beschließt, das Geld zu behalten und die Leiche zu entsorgen, und zwar so, daß sie weder an Füßen, Händen oder an den Zähnen identifiziert werden kann. Kaum geschehen, treten neue Probleme auf, unter anderem in Gestalt von zwei Polizisten und zwei Killern. Weitere Leichen müssen verschwinden, doch das Grab ist nicht tief genug ... Und dann - langsam aber sicher - machen sich erst abgrundtiefes Mißtrauen und schließlich nackter Wahnsinn unter den vermeintlichen Freunden breit
