Die gespaltene Zunge (working title)

The Split Tongue (working title)

Peter Brunner
A man with the mental faculties of a child must save his mother, thereby becoming both God and the Devil.
Twenty-eight-year-old Johannes, a simple-minded man with a cleft lip and palate, lives in an isolated house in the Alps with his pious mother, Maria, whose faith is a mystery to him. When the farm they lease is rezoned for development as a tourist center, a chain of sinister events is set in motion, but `Who is behind it all? Johannes wonders. Is it the farm, his mother or the Devil? Only an exorcism that puts Johannes' faith to the test will provide the answer.
