L'avevano coperta con un telo, per proteggerla dalla pioggia e dallo sguardo indiscreto dei curiosi. Era giovane, troppo giovane per morire.
È notte fonda. L'autostrada è quasi deserta e la pioggia si accanisce impietosa sull'asfalto nero. Bohrmann è esausto, non vede l'ora di arrivare a casa. All'improvviso, sbucata dal nulla, davanti a lui appare una figura esile. L'impatto è inevitabile. Bohrmann inchioda, scende dall'auto e chiama l'ambulanza, però non c'è niente da fare. La ragazza è morta. Ma, come appurerà il medico legale, non per via dell'incidente: qualcuno l'ha colpita con violenza alla testa; qualcuno da cui lei stava scappando, senza sapere di essere già condannata… La detective Franza Oberwieser si occupa del caso. Ha un figlio, Ben, cui ha sempre dedicato troppo poco tempo e che adesso, a vent'anni, le rivolge a stento la parola. Ed è proprio a Ben che Franza pensa di fronte al corpo senza vita di quella ragazza, che doveva avere più o meno la sua età. Dalle prove rinvenute, sembrerebbe che Ben conoscesse molto bene la vittima. Anche lui è implicato nell'omicidio? È per questo che ultimamente è così silenzioso? E come può una madre sospettare il figlio?

Trying out a new author, an unknown quantity at that, is not an easy thing. The normal route many readers would take is to grab the latest from a bestselling author and spend the lazy summer days under the shade somewhere and doze off peacefully. There is the tendency to ignore new and exciting auth Leggi tutto
Rain Girl (click on book or see below for description) By Gabi Kreslehner Releases 8/1/14 Downloaded free through Kindle First program Rating: 2 bones Finish Time: 3 nights.

It's always thrilling to discover a really good writer who's relatively unknown. Gabi Kreslehner may have a good reputation in Germany, where she's based, (the book is a translation), but she was undiscovered by me until I stumbled across this gem on sale at Amazon. Wow. What a thought-provoking, su Leggi tutto
3.5 stars Looking through the dozens of unread books I have in my Kindle app, I found this one, reread the synopsis, and decided to give it a whirl. Turned out to be a pretty good choice. This is a rather simply mystery set in Munich, Germany, along the Danube and the autobahn. The writing style was t Leggi tutto
Rain Girl was one of those books that was very readable but does not stand out as anything spectacular, certainly not in comparison to other crime fiction I have read this year. It's the first time one of Gabi Kreslehener's books has been translated into English, therefore my first taste of her writ Leggi tutto
My thanks to NetGalley and Amazon Publishing for an eARC copy of this book to read and review. Ranty spoiler-fest follows, you've been warned. OK, WHAT is with this new trend of fiction books where NONE of the characters are likable? I know people aren't perfect, that we all have our downsides, but R Leggi tutto
I never let translation affect my book reviews and this is no exception. While I believe a lot of this story is lost in the language difference, that didn't factor into the rating I give this book. The characters come across as a bit harsh and unfeeling and with very little depth to them. This also s Leggi tutto
I listened to this on audible and read it on my kindle... it was a short detective thriller type story. It was ok. The story line was ok, the characters were ok. It was entertaining but I'm glad it was short. Otherwise, it might have not held my attention very well. This book was translated into Eng Leggi tutto
A melancholy tale that was surprisingly satisfying. Would have given this book 5 stars but the translator should have left the German references in place instead of converting to American references. That distracted from the otherwise excellent story. Made it seem way too Americanized for a story tak Leggi tutto
I really enjoyed this book. The two lead detectives, Franza and Felix, came to life for me. They reminded me of the detectives on ABC 's Motive. Real chemistry. And the story kept you wondering, while throwing pieces of the puzzle at you. It had a little bit of a dark undertone, a la Gone Girl, I th Leggi tutto
