Elisabeth  Herrmann - Sunken Graves


Long-lost letters, a family vault, and a brutal murder

It’s been several years since lawyer Joachim Vernau exposed the masterminds behind a murder plot. He’s long since moved on from the practice he ran with his former partner Marie-Luise – until he receives a plea for help from Poland. Jazek, their mutual friend and drinking buddy from days of yore, has been imprisoned and charged with murder – a crime he insists he didn’t commit.

Determined to help his friend, Vernau travels to Poland, where sunken graves in an old cemetery provide him with his first clue. Long-lost letters and long-forgotten suffering gradually draw Vernau deeper and deeper into the past, back to the maelstrom of 1945. As people fled, or were driven from their homes, the end of the war was also a time of new beginnings. Victims and perpetrators crossed paths – with horrifying consequences. Now, generations later, the horror is rising again from the graves – and all those who confront it must die.

"Elisabeth Herrmann is the uncrowned queen of intelligent suspense. She has developed the literary thriller to perfection."
