Synopsis
Snow White Must Die by Nele Neuhaus is a tremendous new contemporary mystery series and huge international bestseller—with more than 3.5 million copies in print!

On a rainy November day police detectives Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are summoned to a mysterious traffic accident: A woman has fallen from a pedestrian bridge onto a car driving underneath. According to a witness, the woman may have been pushed. The investigation leads Pia and Oliver to a small village, and the home of the victim, Rita Cramer.

On a September evening eleven years earlier, two seventeen-year-old girls vanished from the village without a trace. In a trial based only on circumstantial evidence, twenty-year-old Tobias Sartorius, Rita Cramer’s son, was sentenced to ten years in prison. Bodenstein and Kirchhoff discover that Tobias, after serving his sentence, has now returned to his home town. Did the attack on his mother have something to do with his return?

In the village, Pia and Oliver encounter a wall of silence. When another young girl disappears, the events of the past seem to be repeating themselves in a disastrous manner. The investigation turns into a race against time, because for the villagers it is soon clear who the perpetrator is—and this time they are determined to take matters into their own hands.

An atmospheric, character-driven and suspenseful mystery set in a small town that could be anywhere, dealing with issues of gossip, power, and keeping up appearances.

Amazon.com Review
Amazon Best Books of the Month, January 2013: Nele Neuhaus’s provocatively titled Snow White Must Die is already an international best-seller, and it’s easy to see why this mystery has been universally embraced. Set in a small village outside Frankfurt, Snow White works so well in large part because of how firmly it is rooted in place. The sense of claustrophobia grows with each turn of the page; the people living in this small town are enmeshed in complex relationships based on lies, blood, and shared history. Two detectives, both outsiders, investigating the disappearance of a local girl discover that the crime is connected to events from 10 years ago in a way that is more twisted and toxic than they could have predicted. Neuhaus’s seemingly formulaic procedural mystery (girls go missing, it ties together with previous murders, townspeople won’t open up) is actually a nuanced take on how deeply rooted misogyny is in society, the problems with groupthink, and the power of silence. --Caley Anderson
