Listened to part of the audiobook version and I wish I had those hours of my life back. Slow plot, too many characters (and too much switching between them).
I could not finish this, perhaps the ending is worth it, but I have other things to read and life is short.

This is the fourth book in the series featuring detectives Pia Kirchoff and Oliver von Bodenstein, but the first translated into English. I was attracted by the title when I saw it on the new book shelf and found it captured me almost immediately. Set near Frankfurt, this story stretches back to crimes committed 11 years before. The man found guilty of those crimes has just been released from jail. The two detectives have recently begun a case around a long dead body found in a tank on an old airfield, and soon have another case when a woman is pushed from a bridge onto a busy road beneath. The detectives soon find a link between the two cases, and the old case of the missing girls, presumed dead. When another girl in the same village goes missing, Pia is sure there is a link and that time is of the essence.
Also here, we see into the detectives' personal lives, with von Bodenstein having marital issues that distract him, and Pia worried about the legalities of her housing situation. There are additional dramas among other officers as well.
This is a novel about greed for power and influence, and the corruption that often goes along with it. A book about ego, and about people driven by their own wants without regard for others. A story of justice gone wrong, and village politics. Lots going on, and an interesting new author.
