Sabine  Thiesler - Witch Child


After the sensational success of Der Kindersammler – the new thriller by Sabine Thiesler.

Sarah is found in a little house in the middle of a wood in Tuscany – dead, with a slit throat. Numberless motives could be named for the murder of the German wife of the owner of the local trattoria. Ever since Sarah came to the little Italian village from Germany with her husband, her presence had increasingly been at the centre of rumours and agitation. There was a lot about Sarah that was a little odd, not least her past in Germany, which she had left in a hurry with her little daughter to start a new life in Italy. But also Sarah's beauty and her frequently boundless joie de vivre repeatedly caused conflict between her and the villagers.

So the search for the murderer is more than a journey into Sarah's past and that of her family but also to the abysses of the people living in the little village in Tuscany. During the investigations, each one of them is faced with the question of what separates guilt from innocence. The village community becomes the microcosm in which culprit and victim are placed side by side and their destinies inseparably intertwined with on another. In the end, however, each one is alone with his or her deeds.
