'A must for mystery fans . . . great customer reviews' The Bookseller

Snow White Must Die by Nele Neuhaus is the huge international bestseller - with over 3 million copies sold, and the first book in the Bodenstein & Kirchoff crime series.

On a wet November day, Detectives Pia Kirchoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are summoned to the scene of a mysterious accident. A woman has fallen from a bridge onto the motorway below. It seems that she may have been pushed. The investigation leads them to a small town near Frankfurt, and the home of the victim, Rita Cramer.

On a September evening eleven years earlier, two seventeen-year-old girls, Laura and Stefanie (also known as Snow White), vanished without trace from this same village. In a trial based entirely on circumstantial evidence, Stefanie's boyfriend, handsome and talented, Tobias Sartorius, was sentenced to ten years in prison. He has now returned to his home in an attempt to clear his name. Rita Cramer is his mother.

In the village, Pia and Oliver encounter a wall of silence. But when another young girl goes missing, the events of the past repeat themselves in a disastrous manner. The investigation turns into a dramatic race against time, because for the villagers, there is soon no doubt as to the identity of the perpetrator. And this time they are determined to take matters into their own hands.

'Ms Neuhaus is Germany's top-selling crime novelist, and her work is catching on throughout Europe' Wall Street Journal

Review quote

'Snow White Must Die looks like being a must for mystery fans this summer, based on the great customer reviews it's already getting across the Atlantic' Emma Giacon, The Bookseller 'The Nele Neuhaus thriller that's captivated Germany (and been compared to Stieg Larsson) is finally getting published in the UK. The whodunit about two 17-year-old girls who go missing is filled with forensic detail and rattles along at a breakneck pace' Grazia 'Nele Neuhaus has made quite a splash in her native Germany with her series of books about Hofheim regional crime unit's oddly aristo detective Oliver von Bodenstein and his sidekick DI Pia Kirchoff...The pair come with personal problems as standard but Neuhaus lets their home cirses bleed convincingly into their work and builds a thickly plotted tale to a satisfying conclusion' Metro
