Description

Jan Fabel is a haunted man. Head of the Polizei Hamburg's Murder Commission, Fabel has dealt with the dead for nearly two decades, but when a routine enquiry becomes a life-threatening - and life-changing - experience, he finds himself on much closer terms with death than ever before. 

Two years later Fabel's first case at the Murder Commission comes back to haunt him: Monika Krone's body is found at last, 15 years after she went missing. Monika - ethereally beautiful, intelligent, cruel - was the centre of a group of students obsessed with the gothic.

Fabel reopens the case. What happened that night when Monika left a party and disappeared into thin air? When men involved with Monika start turning up dead, Fabel realizes he is looking for a killer with both a hunger for revenge and a taste for the gothic.

What he doesn't know is that someone has been aiding and grooming a deranged escapee as his own personal tool for revenge. A truly gothic monster to be let loose on the world.

Disappointing instalment in the Fabel series

The narration of this book contained some very strange pronunciations, stumbles and slips: and I don't believe it was an issue of translation or adaptation. The odd one is tolerable, but there were enough here for it to become annoying. A disappointing lack of attention to the narration - whether in editing or direction - of this product.

In addition, it saddens me to say that this isn't the strongest instalment of the Fabel series. I was surprised at how unsubtle the ending was. While the Fabel books are quite dark, they usually have a level of sophistication and innovation that seemed to be missing from this particular story. It will still be a 'must read' for a Fabel completist, but I wouldn't readily recommend it to a casual reader.
