Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, January 2013 - With a title like that how can you not be intrigued? Already an international bestseller, Neuhaus's US debut has garnered plenty of pre-release buzz for taking well-worn mystery staples (cold case, small town, unfriendly populace) and artfully weaving them together into something altogether fresh, with a story that keeps readers on their toes till the end. —Michael, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

On a rainy November day, police detectives Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are summoned to a mysterious traffic accident: a woman has fallen from a pedestrian bridge onto a car driving underneath. According to a witness, the woman may have been pushed. The investigation leads Pia and Oliver to a small village, and the home of the victim, Rita Cramer.

On a September evening eleven years earlier, two seventeen-year-old girls vanished from the village without a trace. In a trial based only on circumstantial evidence, twenty-year-old Tobias Sartorius, Rita Cramer's son, was sentenced to ten years in prison. Bodenstein and Kirchhoff discover that Tobias, after serving his sentence, has now returned to his home town. Did the attack on his mother have something to do with his return? In the village, Pia and Oliver encounter a wall of silence. When another young girl disappears, the events of the past seem to be repeating themselves in a disastrous manner. The investigation turns into a race against time, because for the villagers it is soon clear who the perpetrator is - and this time they are determined to take matters into their own hands.

    "Bad Translation"

    The book was entertaining, but the story had gaps and characters weren't well-developed. Next time, I'll go with Tana French.

    I am always looking for the next memoir or true story to appease the feminist inside me who loves psychology.

    Story
    "Story starts strong but leaves you bored"
    What was most disappointing about Nele Neuhaus’s story?

    The pace of the story was off. The entire middle of the book reminds you that this book is part of a series about the investigators and is NOT about the intriguing investigation that draws you in during the first few chapters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did at first! I thought, this will be the next big hit series! There will be movies and I will be able to say I was the first person I know to give it a shot. Yeah... I don't think that anymore.

    Story
    "Lost in translation perhaps"
    Would you try another book from Nele Neuhaus and/or Robert Fass?

    I am not sure that I would. The prose is wooden and it could be a translation issue. On the other hand the plot was convoluted and seemed to take forever to resolve all the different threads, and not always very convincingly.

    I am a retired Army veteran and love to read. I like murder mystery, but enjoy nonfiction. I am a long time Star Trek fan.

    Story
    "Powerful"

    A captivating story with an excellent depiction of Germany. The narrator's pronunciation of words and accents of each characters made the story more believable. However near the end I was ready for the story to end. The plots were great, but too many for one book. I think a second book to wrap up cliff hangers would have been better.

    "good story - difficult to follow"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have to admit that as an American who doesn't speak German the names were hard to follow. If the narrator had not tried so hard to use an accent with the names it might have been easier. The story was honestly very good and I did enjoy it, The narrator was really not bad at all - I just started to get annoyed at the name pronounciations. I would recommend this book.

    Story
    "Dark as Night Red as Blood White as Snow!"
    What did you love best about Snow White Must Die?

    The way the story appears to take on different avenues and plots, leaving the listener wondering just who killed the mysterious 17 year old girls? Who has Snow White mummified all dolled up... is the scary question?


    What other book might you compare Snow White Must Die to and why?

    This was my 1st Nele Neuhaus novel however I would compare her to Lisa Gardner, if I had to compare works to another author mainly because of the diverse plots and twist and turns of the main characters guilt or innocence.


    Which character – as performed by Robert Fass – was your favorite?

    Oliver von Bodenstein complex situation with his wife during the story is by far compelling and makes him one of my endeared characters. I also cant forget the main character Tobias Sartorius who has been accused of murder. Tobias is so hot, you can't believe you could like someone who may have committed such a crime.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I enjoyed listening to this audio in intervals, however the closer I came to end the more I wanted to find out who the killer was. I ended up listening to the last four hours straight to the end nonstop. I'll tell you a secret, the end is a funny surprise and turns out to be well worth the purchase.

    Story
    "If I Heard, 'In a lurch,' ONE MORE TIME...."

    *Exasperated sigh* What a tedious listen. As soon as the mystery starts to get interesting, the author drops the mysterious element by revealing the villains/conspirators, then attempts to throw the reader off again by introducing another problem/mystery, then another, then another, then another, to the point that you no longer care who did what, you just want the book to end. It also seemed poorly written, repeating various words and phrases: EVERYONE in this book was in danger of being left, "In a lurch," by one character or another. Like others, I figure some things may have been lost in translation, but "1Q84" fared reasonably well. There could've been so much more done with the premise, the characters, and the motives, but it never came to fruition. There were also beau-coup characters, and the poor narration made for a confusing, indistinguishable listen. I'm glad I got this one on sale, otherwise, I'd ask for a refund.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. Excellent listen.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot kept me guessing. There was so many suspects to choose from, it was hard to pick just one or two or three...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene in the diner when one of the conspirators decides they must act and takes it upon himself to...


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
