More About Woman of the Dead by Bernhard Aichner
 
 
 
Overview
The #1 international bestseller praised as "one of the most arresting thrillers I've read in years" (#1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner), Woman of the Dead is the darkly thrilling tale of Brunhilde Blum, a successful undertaker whose happiness is dashed by a tragedy that sets her on a path of revenge.

For the past eight years, Blum has had a good life--a life that masks the terrible secrets of her past. She is a successful undertaker, a doting mother, and the loving wife of a decorated police officer.

Then in one devastating moment, a hit-and-run changes everything. As Blum's grief over the death of her husband, Mark, overwhelms her, only her two little girls can drag her back to the land of the living. Time passes quietly until while packing up Mark's office, Blum discovers a recorded conversation from a case he was investigating. She soon learns Mark's death was no accident--it was murder--and Blum dives headfirst into the abyss to find out why and have her revenge.

Woman of the Dead, the first book in a trilogy, is an unforgettable thriller about the lengths one passionate woman will go to for vengeance and the tug-of-war between good and evil that exists in all of us. Vivid, tense, and written with breakneck narration, this novel introduces Bernhard Aichner as a rising star in crime fiction.

Austrian author Aichner makes his English-language debut with a tense thriller, the first in a trilogy. Brünhilde Blum, a 24-year-old undertaker in Innsbruck, couldn’t be happier. She has a thriving business, a husband she loves, and two little girls she adores. Then a large black car fatally strikes her police officer husband, Mark, who’s just left for work on his motorcycle, and speeds away. Paralyzed with grief, Blum knows she must be strong for her girls, but that grief is refocused when she discovers evidence that indicates Mark’s death was no accident and that the people responsible are among the vilest of men. Blum is all too familiar with the evil that men do, and she’s not afraid to use every tool at her disposal to take down Mark’s killers. Not for the faint of heart, this thoroughly satisfying novel explores how far a person will go for love. (Aug.)
