The Dance of Death

1 Mins read

The Dance of Death is the third in Oliver Bottini’s Black Forest Investigations series featuring detective Louise Bonì. When, on a foggy Saturday afternoon, an armed man appears in the garden of the Niemann family in Freiburg, Germany, their lives are changed inexplicably. As Louise Bonì and her team investigate, it becomes clear that there’s more to it than a single lone man threatening the safety of a family and their home.

Bottini writes a crime novel where the crime takes the backseat to a larger, more important issue – the question of identity, belonging and the importance of calling a place your home. Read our full review here.
