I received a free kindle copy of Dead Woods by Maria C. Poets, translated by Maria Poglitsch Bauer, published by Amazon Publishing from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.
I gave this murder mystery five stars because it kept me guessing, there were multiple suspects, the characters were well drawn & it kept me turning the pages.
Lina Svenson & Max Berg of the Hamburg Homicide Division are partners investigating the murder of Philip Birkner.
"Trotting along the gravel path next to her colleague, Lina Svenson furtively rubbed the sleep out of her eyes, yearning for a cup of coffee. Max Berg looked very proper with his short black hair, clean jeans, a jacket & perfectly polished shoes. It was not the first time Lina asked herself how the hell he pulled it off."
The partner of Philip Birkner is being questioned by Lina. "Katja Ansmann raised an eyebrow, something Lina hated, especially when, as was the case here, the gesture implied contempt."
I enjoyed & highly recommend reading Dead Woods.
