A journalist on the track of an old case attempts suicide. An ordinary couple return from a house swap in the states to find their home in disarray and their guests seemingly missing. Four strangers struggle to find shelter on a windswept spike of rock in the middle of a raging sea. They have one thing in common: they all lied.
Ein Standalone-Thriller. „A tour de force… Sigurdardottir handles the different plot strands brilliantly, bringing them together in an unforgettable climax.“ (The Sunday Times, Crime Book of the Month) (50 Rezensionen / 4,0 Sterne), 402 Seiten noch günstig?
Aldis is working in a juvenile detention centre in rural Iceland. She witnesses something deeply disturbing in the middle of the night; soon afterwards, two of the boys at the centre are dead. Decades later, single father Odinn is looking into alleged abuse at the centre following the unexplained death of the colleague who was previously running the investigation. The more he finds out, though, the more it seems the odd events of the 1970s are linked to the accident that killed his ex-wife. Was her death something more sinister?
Auch ein Buch außerhalb der Serien. „Very Atmospheric, and very difficult to put down! Excellent plot line with lifelike characters, and a twist in the tale done to perfection. Read and enjoy.“ (Leser) (30 Rezensionen / 4,0 Sterne), 369 Seiten noch günstig?
Bodies are discovered in one of the excavated houses at a volcanic tourist attraction dubbed ‚The Pompeii of the North‘. Markus Magnusson, who was only a teenager when the volcano erupted, falls under suspicion and hires attorney Thora Gudmundsdottir to defend him – but when his childhood sweetheart is murdered his case starts to look more difficult, and the locals seem oddly reluctant to back him up …
Buch 3 der Serie Thóra Gudmundsdóttir, und ja, man kann ihn auch genießen, ohne die vorherigen Bücher gelesen zu haben. „Excellent police procedural book using exotic historical facts about the eruption of a volcano on one of the islands south of Iceland which plays a part in both the cover up of four murders and later the revealing of the killer.“ (Rezensent) (68 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 468 Seiten noch günstig?
