Melanie  Raabe - The Shadow


"A story that is not simply a gripping, coolly staged psycho thriller – it is also a crystal clear comment on the important topics of our times, on #metoo for example, and all the problems connected with one's private sphere in this age of digitalisation. More than anything else, however, The Shadow is one thing: fantastic entertainment!"

WDR Cosmo

"Yet again it sounds like it's begging to be filmed."


"There is a writer at work here who knows what she's doing and who obviously has huge fun making up a story."


"I even find that this is her best book."

Sebastian Fitzek

"Melanie Raabe is highly talented when it comes to dealing with elements of suspense."

Deutschlandfunk Kultur

"The Shadow is an ingeniously staged game of hide and seek […]. With her third thriller, Raabe has delivered impressive proof that her 2015 debut novel, The Trap […] was not a mere flash in the pan."

Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger

"Brilliantly written thriller about revenge and justice."

Für Sie

"[one] of the best books for the summer"

"Like the other two books, the Cologne author's third novel is compelling and exciting."

Frau im Spiegel

"Melanie Raabe writes gripping psycho thrillers."


"The new thriller from the crime story prize recipient is a true page-turner."

top magazin

"Extraordinary plot, masterfully composed."
