Christa von Bernuth - Deep Under Ground


An abducted girl, a grave in the forest – and a village that still refuses to talk about it

A village in Upper Bavaria, 1981. Ten-year-old Annika is cycling home, but never arrives. Following unbearable days of waiting, the police make a shocking discovery: They unearth a chest in the forest, and find the girl's body inside. Annika was buried alive. A trail leads to the nearby boarding school, but is never followed up. Years later, a suspect is convicted of her murder – but he maintains his innocence to this day.

In this novel based on her own research into the events, Bernuth revisits the case in pursuit of the truth about what really happened all those years ago.

"Christa von Bernuth has turned true crime into a novel that aims to – and does – more than merely recount a tragic story."
