    eBook Oliver Pötzsch æ æ Die Henkerstochter Kindle ê henkerstochter kindle, Die Henkerstochter eBook“Under torture you are as if under the dominion of those grasses that produce visions Everything you have heard told everything you have read returns to your mind as if you were being transported not toward heaven but toward hell Under torture you say not only what the inuisitor wants but also what you imagine might please him because a bond this truly diabolical is established between you and him These things I know Ubertino; I also have belonged to those groups of men who believe they can produce the truth with white hot iron Well let me tell you the white heat of truth comes from another flame” ― Umberto Eco The Name of the RoseThe Bavarian town of Schongau already has a multitude of problems an ongoing trade war with the Augsburgers a fiery controversy over building a leper house and the ever present fears of plague and witchcraft It is 1659 but just seventy years previously over 60 women

    eBook Oliver Pötzsch æ æ Die Henkerstochter Kindle ê henkerstochter kindle, Die Henkerstochter eBookUpdated 13012711 20% read Having a difficult time with this one That's what I get for jumping on the popularity bandwagon So far the titular character has been on one page ONE WTF translators? Was this the original title? And it just feels a bit anachronistic nothing so far I can really put a finger on but I'm wondering if this is new novelist or uninspired translation or just plain sophomoric writing? Meh It'll get better right? I hope Last time I succumbed to everybody's reading it I got shafted with The Historian Please Book Gnomes don't let this be another one of those12911finished That wasn't so bad I still can't figure out why it was called The Hangman's Daughter since she really played a tertiary role in the storyline Heck even the Leper House got face tim

    eBook Oliver Pötzsch æ æ Die Henkerstochter Kindle ê henkerstochter kindle, Die Henkerstochter eBookA strong and enjoyable debut of a new series set in Schongau Germany The setting was the main reason I decided to give this series a try Usually historical mysteries happen either in London or somewhere in the US This is why The Hangman's daughter is a breeze of fresh air in the genre 1659 Schongau's Hangman Jakob Kuisl is a feared man avoided because of superstitions but also sought out for his healing skills His daughter is too smart for a young girl and follows into her dad's shoes with her knowledge of plants and their healing properties Simon the physician's son is interested in the new medicine methods and is seeking guidance from the hangman The bonus is that he gets to see his da

    eBook Oliver Pötzsch æ æ Die Henkerstochter Kindle ê henkerstochter kindle, Die Henkerstochter eBookThis was a 354 for me Basically I found this to be a very good genre crime novel set in 17th century Bavaria There are good guys and bad guys with the good guys using logic and rationality to solve a series of child murders before the killer strikes again while others in the town think the murders are the result of witchcraft and devilry The pages fly swiftly the mystery is engrossing and the historical setting is interesting If you're looking for a morally uncomplicated historical mystery this is a great choice So what explains why I didn't rate it higher? At the time I picked this up I was perhaps in the mood for something morally and aesthetically challenging something with complex characters and striking prose This book doesn't really deliver those kinds of goods I can't really fault the book it is what it is but I mention this because sometimes it's

    eBook Oliver Pötzsch æ æ Die Henkerstochter Kindle ê henkerstochter kindle, Die Henkerstochter eBookI have read some reviews that say this is not about the Hangman's daughter but about The Hangman Jakob The Physician Simon I thought Magdalena played a key role and I liked the strong female characters throughout the story The midwives also Jakob being thought of as witches by the very same people that come knocking upon their doors after dark for a potion or to help deliver a baby So well described are the people the devil with his bone hand is truly frightening The detail of the life times of 1659 is great The way the Hangman must do horrible jobs for the whole town yet no one will make eye contact with the man Once as he was walking Jakob came upon a cart stuck in the path he without being asked put his shoulder to it freed the cart No thanks no offer of
