Karen Jungabout this book: 'Im Auge der Öffentlichkeit' is the German translation of the short story 'Public Criminal', which was published in May 2014. The story is about a crime that was committed in the midst of bystanders, journalists and the police. The terrible consequence of this crime is the death of a young girl and the guilt that has tormented David Freeman ever since. An encounter on the anniversary of the girl's death brings change and a different view of what happened all that time ago.
What inspired me to write this story was to explore the thoughts and feelings of a member of the police, who feels guilty and torments himself and his environment for the decision he made all those years ago. I did not know how the story would end when I started writing. It all fell into place over time.
What came as a surprise to me was that David Freeman was not the only person who felt guilty. I found myself writing about guilt on several levels. I think this added tension and a sense of reality.
