The Dance of Death: A Black Forest Investigation III

Oliver Bottini

3 Reviews

Rated 0

The Black Forest Investi, Germany, Crime & mystery, Fiction in translation

The third in the Black Forest Investigations series - by CWA shortlisted author

One wet and misty weekend in October, the Niemann family find a stranger in their garden. He is armed and tries to force his way into the house, but disappears as soon as the police are alerted. That night he's back with an impossible ultimatum . . .

Freiburg detective Louise Boni and her colleagues are put under enormous pressure. Traces of evidence lead her to a no-man's-land, and to a ruthless criminal who brings with him the trauma of conflict in the Balkans.

Translated from the German by Jamie Bulloch
