ABOUT
THE BOOK

How far would you go to avenge the one you love?
Blum has a secret buried deep in her past. She thought she’d left the past behind. But then Mark, the man she loves, dies.

His death looks like a hit-and-run. It isn’t a hit-and-run. Mark has been killed by the men he was investigating.

And then, suddenly, Blum rediscovers what she’s capable of…

The unstoppable German thriller which is sweeping the globe: Woman of the Dead is the hugely compelling novel about a woman who seeks revenge and gets it.
