Bernhard  Aichner - Woman of the Dead


A woman wants revenge – and gets it

Blum is an undertaker. She is the loving mother of two children and is popular because of her huge heart, her black humour and her coolness; she rides a motorbike, likes drinking and is happily married. Blum has a good life.

But then everything goes to pieces when her husband, a policeman, is killed in an accident. Mark is run over before her very eyes. A hit-and-run job. Her life breaks apart. Blum grieves but refuses to come to terms with her fate. The most important thing in her life is no longer there. Her support, her happiness. Quite by chance she discovers that there is more to her husband's accident than meets the eye, that five influential people wanted his death.

Blum seeks revenge. What happened? Why did Mark have to die? When she has collected the answers, she strikes...

"Hypnotic! [...] Be afraid. Be very, very afraid. […] One of the most arresting Thrillers I’ve read for years."

Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author
