Veteran homicide detective Franza Oberwieser prefers her job in the winter. Summer is for growing, not for dying. So when the body of a beautiful young woman is found on the autobahn, dressed in a glittering party dress and bathed in June rain, Franza is determined to give her justice.
Revealing victims’ hidden lives is part of the job, but as Franza and her partner, Felix, peel back the layers shrouding the girl’s disturbing past, darker mysteries emerge. Everyone has something to hide - even Franza, who must face her own secrets to reveal the truth.

There are just so many coincidences one can accept when it comes to mysteries. This book, though reasonably well written, had too many large coincidences. The translation was generally good, but occasionally not.
The tale of a girl who was killed on the autoban on a rainy night. Interesting characters with very complicated lives at work and at home. The mystery kept my interest and had many surprises through out the story.
They deserve each other. Couldn't get beyond an hour. Plus bad technicals - echo chamber effect. Complete waste of cyberspace.
I had to push myself to finish it. There are references to people and situations that are never explained. I kept thinking that I missed a prior book in the series but there isn't any. It doesn't flow.

Starts off slowly, then gets better in the middle. Does a good job of depicting the killer losing a grip on things. Turned out better than I thought it would.
