Description
The unlikely hangman hero of The Dark Monk and The Hangman's Daughter returns for this gripping third tale from Oliver Pötzsch, set in 1662 Bavaria. Jakob Kuisl, the salaried hangman of an Alpine village, receives a letter from his sister calling him to the imperial city of Regensburg. A gruesome sight greets him there—his sister's throat has been slit—and Jakob, arrested for the murder, now faces the same sort of torture he himself has been required to administer for years. His iron-willed daughter Magdalena and her doctor paramour Simon hasten to his aid (with the help of an underground network of beggars, a beer-brewing monk, and an Italian playboy) but what they find could endanger the entire German Empire.
