English

review 1: This was my first Oliver Potzsch novel. While it was an entertaining read, I also found it a little silly. Some of the action scenes brought to mind unbelievable situations in movies I've seen, where the heroes escape the bad guys by using their wits instead of brawn (because the...

review 1: Great detail on life after the horrific Thirty Years War. Typical German castle town -- the caste divisions, the daily life, the pervasive memory of the earlier witch hunts: it's all here. Add an unlikely romance, superstitions, and an executioner with torn emotions as to his pro...

review 1: I really enjoyed The Hangman's Daughter, but clearly I should have waited before buying all the sequels. I figured they would all be fun, clever mysteries set in a fascinating place and time. Not so much. This one gets three stars only for the interesting glimpse into history. Ot...

review 1: I love Potzsch's way of storytelling and how utterly hopeless this book made me feel!the others did too but this one takes the cake by removing Jakob from his usual powerful self being a hangman to an accused man doomed to the gallows. His only hope is his daughter and Simon.The ...

review 1: This was the third book I've read in the Hangman's Daughter series and I won't be reading a fourth. I started out really liking the series, but now after the third book, I've found that I don't really like the character of Simon, I'm annoyed with Magdalena for settling for him...

review 1: I’ve found that the best parts of this book was the information about Ludwig the II and Theodor Marot’s diary, but I found that the characters—most noticeably Steven and Sara—felt a bit bland. I also felt that the villains never presented much of a threat, even if there were defi...

review 1: I read this book because it was recommended by a friend, who knew I lived in Munich . I had visited some of the places mentioned in the book and liked the descriptions of them. At the beginning, the author caught my attention but he didn't hold it throughout the novel. I thoug...

review 1: A murder mystery in medieval Bavaria... seriously? It's like this book was written for me. It is fast moving, reads like an action movie, and kept me formulating and reformulating theories about the evil-doers until almost the end. It can be gruesome at times, and the whole murde...
