Leider viel weniger, als erhofft.

Die wundersame Reise eines verlorenen Gegenstands

Eine Reise bei der Michele sein eigenes "Ich" wiederfindet. Ein sehr schönes Hörbuch

Dann schlaf auch du

Spannend, schockierend und furchtbar traurig. Ein sprachgewaltiges Buch, dass sich so richtig keinem Genre zuordnen lässt. Lesenswert!

Drei Tage und ein Leben

Ein beinahe poetisch anmutendes Psychodrama

Bellis-Perennis

Und es schmilzt

Selten so ein langweiliges Buch gelesen. 22 Euro hätten besser angelegt werden können. Leider.

Tief bedrückendes Portrait einer Gesellschaft! Das Buch war nicht immer schön, aber immer lesenswert.

    The second installment in the Helen Grace series deals with a new grisly murder series, but also with the aftermath of the happenings in book one. Both Helen and Charlie still suffer from the horrible events and have to find their way around the other again, but return to work nonetheless to face another brutal serial killer. I found reading this sequel went much more smooth, as the author seems to have found his rhythm with this series. The plot was suspenseful throughout and worked out perfectly, and the gore level was OK, serving the story without being just for show. As in 'Eeny Meeny', a great part of the book dealt with the inner demons of the main characters, making 'Pop Goes The Weasel' more than just another average thriller. Definitely worth reading, though if you're new to the series I recommend starting with the first book. While the case is a new one, you will want to know the background on the characters from book one to better understand their motivations and behavior here. I will definitely follow Helen Grace to her next case 'The Doll's House'. (I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
