"Neubauer manages […] to build up tension that does not let go of readers until the very last page." Süddeutsche Zeitung
On a godforsaken ancient moor, a woman is burning as if at the stake, round her neck a mysterious amulet. Chief Inspector Waechter and his team from the Munich murder squad are called in on the case, only to discover that any evidence found so far is sparse in the extreme: the scene of a fire, a dead body, signs of foul play.
The only clue they eventually find takes them to a dilapidated farmhouse from which the dead woman disappeared some days previously and which is said to be haunted by the ghost of a little girl. Who hated the woman so much as to kill her in such a gruesome way?
"The interplay of the very different characters creates the great allure of this novel. … An absolutely readable book."
