9780312604264: The Ice Queen: A Novel (Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein)

The body of 92-year-old Jossi Goldberg, Holocaust survivor and American citizen, is found shot to death execution style in his house near Frankfurt. A five-digit number is scrawled in blood at the murder scene. The autopsy reveals an old and unsuccessfully covered tattoo on the corpse's arm―a blood type marker once used by Hitler's SS. Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver Bodenstein are faced with a riddle. Was the old man not Jewish after all? Who was he, really? Two more, similar murders happen―one of a wheelchair-bound old lady in a nursing home, and one of a man with a cellar filled with Nazi paraphernalia―and slowly the connections between the victims becomes evident: All of them were lifelong friends with Vera von Kaltensee, baroness, well-respected philanthropist, and head of an old, rich family that she rules with an iron fist. Pia and Oliver follow the trail, which leads them all the way back to the end of World War II and the area of Poland that then belonged to East Prussia. No one is who they claim to be, and things only begin to make sense when the two investigators realize what the bloody number stands for, and uncover an old diary and an eyewitness who is finally willing to come forward.

Nele Neuhaus's The Ice Queen is a character- and plot-driven mystery about revenge, power, and long-forgotten and covered up secrets from a time in German history that still affects the present.

Review :

“Intriguing...Corpses turn up amid hefty doses of sexual intrigue. Readers need to pay close attention to this solidly plotted and densely populated drama full of red herrings, lest they miss key clues.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Lies and revenge are the driving forces of this intelligent mystery. Neuhaus manages a large cast of characters while skillfully executing plot twists. Newcomers to this series will have no problem jumping in with this book and will likely be interested in reading more.” ―Library Journal

“...action packed [and] darkly mysterious. With surprising depth and some downright funny moments, The Ice Queen is a perfect balance of the humorous and the macabre.” ―Shelfawareness

The Ice Queen is a totally engrossing story. If you haven't found this series yet, you're missing some great reads.” ―Hilary Williamson, Bookloons.com

“A meaty and substantial novel, enlivened by the personal lives of the principal characters and the genuine-sounding relationships among the detectives.” ―Critics at Large
