How do you vindicate a deceased, self-proclaimed killer? A criminal lawyer in Stockholm, Martin Benner sees himself as a man who has it all. Then Bobby T barges into his office one day, demanding his help. Bobby says he´s the brother of Sara Tell, a young woman dubbed `Sara Texas´ by the tabloids after she confessed to five brutal murders some time back – three in Sweden, and two in Texas. Six months ago, she shocked everyone when she escaped from pre-trial custody and leapt off a bridge to her death. But Bobby says she was innocent. He needs Martin´s help to clear her name and to find Sara´s son, Mio, who he says disappeared around the time of her death. As Martin and Lucy, the partner in his firm, delve deeper into the case, their pursuit of the truth takes them across the ocean to Texas, where the pieces of the puzzle slowly fall into place. But before Martin can continue his investigation, he receives some devastating news that turns his world upside down …


My Review

Good, I admit it, if I would have gone after the cover, I´d probably wouldn´t have touched it at all. 

Follow Friday #16 – Highlight April 2017

Friday, April 28, 2017
This is a Friday meme hosted by Patricia of FiktiveWelten. Every week she asks a question that you can answer. Everyone who would like to participate, just answer her question, link to her blog and write a comment under her post to let the others know that you are participating.

The entire rules you can find here.

The last time when Patricia had asked “what our reading highlight” had been in the previous month the response had been such a success that it has become a regular one in the Follow Friday meme.



It seems like ages that I have posted a Follow Friday post. But no matter how difficult things were or still are, there is still time to enjoy a book.

Der Prinz Der Elfen by Holly Black

As always, the cover made me curious in the first place. At least the cover of the German edition. But the cover alone doesn´t make a novel good.

But as Hazel grows up, she puts aside those stories. Hazel knows the horned boy will never wake. Until one day, he does … As the world turns upside down, Hazel has to become the knight she once pretended to be. But as she´s swept up in new love, with shifting loyalties and fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?


My Review

This book proofs that very well. A great to look at cover, but a very confusing story that seems to go nowhere.
