Woman of the Dead by Bernhard Aichner

Woman of the Dead

Bernhard Aichner

'For me this book adds the excitement of the TV series 'Dexter' to the best puzzle elements of Agatha Christie. The book challenges its reader not only to solve crimes, but also to decide whether murder is ever justified - even by its great main character.

'He was run over.'
'What happened to the driver?'
'It was a hit and run. The driver hasn't been traced. He disappeared.'
'- Oh no. Please no.'
'Mark died instantly.'
'You'd better keep away from me .... That was no accident.'
