"Snow White Must Die" by Nele Neuhaus
Snow White Must Die introduces the investigative police detective team of Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein. Written by one of the most widely read German mystery writers, Nele Neuhaus, the compelling small-town locale, where everyone knows every one else's business, and everyone is involved, is set against the larger themes of guilt, redemption, and revenge, resulting in a multilayered, atmospheric, complex, well-plotted mystery.
