Review

."..[an] emotional page turner, fueled by unexpected plot twists."--"Kirkus Reviews" "German author Neuhaus makes her U.S. debut with this impressive multidimensional police procedural, which has already been published in 15 countries with more than three million copies in print. Convicted on circumstantial evidence of murdering two vanished 17-year-old girls, 30-year-old Tobias Sartorius returns home to Altenhain, a village near Frankfurt, after serving his 10-year sentence, to find his parents divorced and their lives as hopeless as his has become. The townspeople maintain a mafia-like code of silence to protect terrible betrayals past and present, even as the discovery of the skeletal remains of one of the missing girls leads Det. Insp. Pia Kirchhoff and Det. Sgt. Oliver von Bodenstein to suspect Tobias was innocent. Meanwhile, the two police officers get caught up in personal crises that realistically counterpoint the violence that greets Tobias's attempts to re-establish his life, when yet another girl goes missing and masked villagers nearly kill him. Again and again, Neuhaus inserts the old Grimm fairy tale refrain--"White as snow, red as blood, black as ebony"--that describes Snow White, the role of one of the original missing girls in a high school play 10 years earlier, to underscore the grimmest of human emotions: white for icily plotted revenge, red for raging jealousy, black for homicidal madness.--"Publishers Weekly (starred review") ."..[will]keep readers turning the pages up to the unpredictable ending...an addictively engaging mystery filled with suspects, confusion, love, and fear. Sure to intrigue and satisfy mystery fans, especially those who love international crime procedurals.--"Library Journal"""

Review

'...[an] emotional page turner, fueled by unexpected plot twists.' (Kirkus Reviews)

'This novel is bursting with conspiracy and subterfuge and a raw exposition of the ugliness that can inhabit the human soul. Like detectives Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein, readers won't stop until the shocking ending is finally revealed.' (USA Today)

'With more twists and turns than you can shake a stick at and a suitably over-the-top ending, Snow White Must Die is excellent poolside fare.' (The Guardian) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I loved this book and I'm so pleased I finally got around to reading it. I had no idea how this fast paced book was going to pan out as there were so many twists and turns. Despite this I didn't find the plot confusing. I think I might have just found myself a new series to read as I'd really like to find out what life has in store for some of the main characters.

When you have to keep asking "who's that", the story has a problem. Too many characters, too much domestic babble and really bad translation doesn't make for a good read.

Sorry but I had to give up on this book. What seemed like a good story was spoiled for me by too many characters with unfamiliar names. I just lost track of it!!

A bit late to this book but I'm glad I found it. A first class thriller and excellently translated, which is often a problem with foreign books. Look forward to the others in the series.

A good book to get stuck into and the style is good but then half way through the style changes and then switches back to original style and it doesn't sit well , slightly confused and rushed towards end but still a recommeded read.

I enjoyed the story once I got into it. I found it a little difficult as the plot was very involved and the names were incredibly long.
