The frozen dead by Bernard Minier( Book )

69 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in 11 languages and held by 1,365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a snowbound valley, deep in the French Pyrenees, a dark story of madness and revenge is unfolding. The first victim is a horse: its headless, flayed body hangs suspended from the edge of a frozen cliff. On the same day as the gruesome discovery takes place, Diane Berg, a young psychiatrist starts her first job at a high security asylum for the criminally insane, just a few miles away. She is baffled by the slightly unorthodox methods the asylum's director uses, and then greatly alarmed when she realizes that drugs are disappearing from within the fortified institution while someone seems to be slipping out at night. Commandant Martin Servaz, a charismatic, Toulouse city cop fond of quoting Latin, can't believe he has been called out over the death of an animal. But there is something disturbing about this crime that he cannot ignore. Then DNA from one of the most notorious inmates of the asylum, a highly intelligent former prosecutor who is accused of killing and raping several women, is found on the corpse ... and a few days later the first human murder takes place. Servaz and his colleague, the mysterious Irene Ziegler, must use all their skill to solve the terrifying mystery"--

"They find the boy by the swimming pool, dolls floating on its surface. Inside the house, his teacher lies dead. But he claims to remember nothing. June 2010. In the middle of a World Cup match, Martin Servaz receives a call from a long-lost lover. A few miles away in the town of Marsac, Classics professor Claire Diemar has been brutally murdered. As if that weren't disturbing enough, Servaz receives a cryptic e-mail indicating that Julian Hirtmann, the most twisted of all serial killers, is back, and hitting a little too close to home. With death and chaos surrounding the small university town in Southern France where he was once a student and where his daughter is now enrolled, Servaz must act quickly. With the help of detectives Irene Ziegler and Esperandieu, Servaz will have to uncover a world of betrayal and depravity to connect the dots between these gruesome murders that keep re-opening wounds from his past. After the success of The Frozen Dead, Bernard Minier plunges readers once again into a perfectly constructed, dark and oppressive atmosphere, driven foreward by a gripping plot, pushing the limits of the genre"--

Kindertotenlied( Recording )

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine Professorin der Elitehochschule Marsac wird ermordet aufgefunden. In ihrem Garten sitzt der verstörte Sohn von Kommissar Servaz' Jugendliebe Marianne, Hugo. Als sich am Tatort Hinweise auf den flüchtigen Serienmörder Julian Hirtmann finden, stellt sich Servaz die Frage, ob der Killer erneut zugeschlagen hat oder ob jemand versucht, ihn zu kopieren. Ein tödliches Spiel beginnt. "'Kindertotenlied' ist ein ausgesprochen spannender Thriller, den man nicht mehr aus der Hand legen kann, wenn man einmal mit dem Lesen begonnen hat. Er ist noch mitreissender als 'Schwarzer Schmetterling' [vgl. IN-G 24/12], da die Handlung wesentlich schneller in Fahrt kommt. Auch die Figuren gewinnen an Kontur ... Trotz der zahlreich vorhandenen Anspielungen ... sind beide Thriller gut unabhängig voneinander lesbar. Man wird noch viel von Servaz und seinem Gegenspieler Hirtmann hören. Unbedingt anschaffen" (K. Buchholz zum Buch, ID-A 8/14). Wieder zieht Sprecher Johannes Steck alle Register seiner Vortragskunst und gibt jeder Figur ihr charakteristisches Auftreten und eine individuelle Stimmfärbung. Ein Grosser des Genres!
