The Poisoned Pilgrim: The Hangman's Daughter, Book 4 | [Oliver Pötzsch, Lee Chadeayne (translator)]

The Poisoned Pilgrim: The Hangman's Daughter, Book 4

1666: The monastery at Andrechs has long been a pilgrimage destination, but when the hangman's daughter, Magdalena; her doctor husband, Simon; and their two small children arrive there, they learn that the monks have far larger concerns than saying Mass and receiving alms. It seems that once again the hangman's family has fallen into a mysterious and dangerous adventure. Two monks at the monastery experiment with cutting-edge technology, including a method of deflecting the lightning that has previously set the monastery ablaze.

Publisher's Summary

1666: The monastery at Andrechs has long been a pilgrimage destination, but when the hangman's daughter, Magdalena; her doctor husband, Simon; and their two small children arrive there, they learn that the monks have far larger concerns than saying Mass and receiving alms. It seems that once again the hangman's family has fallen into a mysterious and dangerous adventure.

Two monks at the monastery experiment with cutting-edge technology, including a method of deflecting the lightning that has previously set the monastery ablaze. When one of the monks disappears and his lab is destroyed, foul play is suspected. Who better to investigate than the famed hangman Jakob Kuisl? But as the hangman and his family attempt to solve the mystery of the missing monk, they must deal with the eccentric denizens of the monastery and villagers who view the monks' inventions as witchcraft that must be destroyed at all costs.

This thrilling fourth entry in the Hangman's Daughter series features scheming monks, murderous robots, and the action and intrigue that never seem to cease when the Kuisls are on a case.

    I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.

    "Good mystery and a bit of history as a bonus"

    Not knowing much about the 1600s, this was a good insight into that era. I am relying of course on the author's research, which seems to me entirely believable. The characters are well developed and likable. I have listened to all the books in this series and I recommend them. If you are a mystery lover as I am, it is a departure from the modern detective novels but make no mistake, it is a well crafted mystery series. Worth the credit and the time. Enjoy.

    "Okay but not as good as the rest."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If they have read any of the other books I would recommend they read this.


    If you’ve listened to books by Oliver Pötzsch and Lee Chadeayne (translator) before, how does this one compare?

    I listened to the other three "Hangman's Daughter" books, they were all about the same in terms of narration, which is great.


    Which character – as performed by Grover Gardner – was your favorite?

    Without a doubt it was Jakob Kuisl. Simon comes in second.


    Was The Poisoned Pilgrim worth the listening time?

    Only because I enjoyed the adventures of Kuisl and company. Probably should have ended at 3.

    "Good book - wrong narrator"

    I enjoyed the setting, the plot, and the scientific knowledge known in that era, but I thought the narrator was a bad choice for this particular book. He sounded to me like he should be reading a hardboiled modern detective story. I thought it was the wrong tone for the book. It made it very difficult to stay immersed in that time period.
