Editorial 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.

Snow White must be Heard

What a wonderful story. Well written, well told and it holds the reader in suspense to the last. Of course it has a happy ending, but could easily have a sequel. Highly recommended and I am happy I found a new author.

What about Robert Fass’s performance did you like?

He added identifiable personality to his characters. This really helps with the enjoyment of an audiobook

Suprisingly Amazing!

I was blow away by the complexity of the story. It had me guessing from the first page to the last. The plot twists and characters were so well developed and slowly exposed throughout the book. It was suspenseful and difficult to turn off. One of the best suspense/mystery novels I've listened to in a long time. It had the same gritty/original feel as, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."

Very exciting!

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

YES, I really enjoyed it, I loved the pace and characters. I wanted to keep listening every day but in this case I am sad my commute is not 15 hrs long :)

Who was your favorite character and why?

They all work together really well, I couldn't pick a favorite.

Any additional comments?

I did not enjoy how short the breaks were in between chapters or voices. It was hard to follow at times because it seemed like just another sentence pause but after a few moments I would realize we changed voices and tones. It was confusing throughout the book because of the reader. I enjoyed his voice and tone but really did not appreciate the too short pauses in between chapters.

You just can't totally guess where this story is going. Pay attention.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the fact that it was a story with many mini stories going on within the theme of the whole.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Absolutely! It would be a entertaining thriller.

Interesting twists

This book was very good although at times it was a little lengthy. The story line is unique with twists along the way I didn't expect. If you like a mystery this book is definitely one I would recommend.
