Andrea  Schacht -


“They say a mirror shows not only the human face but also the human soul. A dark mirror means that the soul is lost – it means death …”

Cologne in the year of Our Lord 1376. Can the self-confident women of the Beguine convent in the city be heretics and poisoners? Young Almut, widow of a cathedral master builder and one of the Beguine community, bravely sets to work to solve the case of a mysterious and fatal accident in the house of the wine merchant de Lipa. She is impelled by more than curiosity – it looks as if the clergy may hold her responsible for the death …

A delightfully original historical thriller set in medieval Cologne – fast-moving, dramatic, colourful, and written with delicious humour. By a German author whose name will be remembered!
