Witty and bold, Lisa is one tough cookie. When heads start coming off, she and her partner/love interest, Fabian, set out to figure out who is the culprit. As she follows her strong intuition, things get even more dangerous as she gets closer to solving the murder case.
'Heads Off' is an entertaining murder mystery to pick up for readers who like their characters refreshingly different and genuine, along with a complex and unpredictable plot that you will not want to put down.
However this is just one of the side plot, for the main plot of the story is that there's a serial killer on the loose in Berlin with a trademark signature of beheading their victims, and with suspects ranging from a couple of whom's husband is actually delighted that one of the victim has been killed, and then the coroner has to ask a local butcher for advice and help in the murder enquiry, the author has your mind running around in circles as to trying to puzzle the pieces together, especially when later that the discovery of the two victims had an affair with the same married woman, and the possibility of her husband seeking revenge.
Overall, this is one seriously complex mysterious plot, a book that'll surprise you right until the very end with some totally unexpected twist. Just make sure you don't forget or fall on top of the cat though.
Other crime thrillers I've read have been very serious and I found them a bit draining; this, however, is quirky and I really enjoyed reading it. I like the diversions from the main theme of death and blood, into who would make a good boyfriend and how to get rid of that stray cat in the living room.
Entertaining, definitely recommended!
The thing I like best about these books in the main character, Lisa Becker. She is a very unlikely hero, but this just adds to the charm of these stories. The characters are very unbelievable, the plot rather unconventional. I would describe this book as a little bit of 'Bridget Jones', a smattering of 'Columbo' and a touch of P.D.James.
Recommended reading for anyone who likes crime fiction, but is bored with the traditional format usually on offer, Falko Rademacher is definitely one to watch!
A light read. Set in Berlin. Liked the main character.
Not as detailed or as heavy as the Scandanavian detective thrillers. More of a light romp.

I found this book rather adolescent, too hung up about sex instead of crime and in need of more careful editing.Published 19 months ago by Barney
