This debut novel is set in a remote German village in 1926 Constable Theodore Hildebrandt is called to the house of Heinrich Muller and his wife Joanna The couple live with Joanna s elderly mother her doctor brother Peter Koenig and his young wife Ute Heinrich and Joanna have a young son and recently had a new baby daughter who is missing The suspected abduction of a baby is considered by Theodore and his deputy and son Klaus as frankly a minor incident When asked by Joanna about what he can do the Constable has few suggestions and in any case he is interested in his attraction to Ute Koenig than anything else Ute herself feels as if someone or something wicked is playing a game on everyone here Indeed the small village is oppressive isolated and there have been rumours that a wolf has been sightedWhen a young Jewish shopkeeper is said to have visited the Muller s house on the day the baby went missing he seems a possible suspect Constable Hildebrandt is not convinced but then as Klaus complains he has the luxury of being an outsider Klaus himself is married and his disgruntled wife is expecting a baby Theodore is a man who has returned damaged from the trenches to find that things have changed and that modernity is beginning to intrude on the uiet corner of the world he previously called his own there is a new road being built and a canning factory is being planned When the ambitous Officer Zelinsky asks Klaus to accompany him on a visit to the Muller s to pay a courteous visit and smooth feathers that Theodore has ruffled he asks whether Klaus is for the new world or the old In many ways this is what this atmospheric book is about a time of change when dangerous ideas such as the new theory of eugenics and improving the race are in the airIf you enjoy historical mysteries then you will certainly like this novel It has a real sense of place an unusual setting and great characters Theodore Hildebrandt is a man who has returned injured from the war to find himself distanced from his son unwanted by his daughter in law and at odds with the changing times Ute Koenig was a young woman who enjoyed teaching but is now under attack for wanting to take the jobs of men who fought for their country The book straddles a time of huge changing attitudes and it is these emerging events which are of as much importance as the crime that Theodore is called to investigate I thought this a really enjoyable read recommend it highly and hope we hear much from this very talented author

Set in a small German village in the 1920s this novel begins with the mysterious death of a baby and the ensuing investigation It gets in to the rise of eugenics and other negative aspects of the early 20th century West However I found the storyline hard to follow and I didn t think the author did a good job developing either the characters or the setting so it dragged somewhat and didn t have a clear purpose

I m stingy on this rating For most of the book I felt at least 4 star connection and enjoyment It was enjoyment in a creepy and mood driven sense too Imbedded in the mindset and narration eyes of Constable Theodore Hildebrandt assisted by his adult son Klaus The first 34ths of the book was 4 star and the twisted complications of two sister in laws especially those and their respective marriages intriguing It s 1926 in Southwest Germany within small village district multi generational neighbor and workmate complexity Secrets upon secrets The last war has left Theodore a wraith with twisted body he is not a well man There are fore warnings in heavy foreboding mood for both practical and superstitious inclinations Over all this hovers continually an immense lack of honesty IMHO Nearly every character has bad memories or increasingly worse future prospects or combinations of both But the characters became real This author can write I loved the book while reading it despite it going slow The mood and locale maintained were excellent We know why the baby void but do we know the whoAnd then the end The last uarter was an aberration As opposed to so many other post WWI European especially English this veteran of war policeman has not the resiliency to buck up There was too much redundancy in the wolf or wolf man aspect within the district And of long displaying outlooks and behaviors associated with cursing others or witchcraft And the German bias toward the Gypsies or the Jewish family the gossip repeated But then again it repeatedly stabbed you with this type of stubborn belief bias that is all too realNo spoilers It s a heavy mood piece and an incredible window into what is coming in the 1930 s that s for sure But I think it needed an ending that popped This one fizzled and moaned It was a deep moan
