Book Review – The Dark Monk

BzzAgent Gave me the Kindle opportunity to enjoy these two novels by Oliver Pötzsch – For that I am very Grateful

ABOUT OLIVER PÖTZSCH, born in 1970, has worked for years as a screenwriter for Bavarian television. He himself is a descendant of the Kuisls, one of Bavaria’s leading dynasties of executioners.

The story: Winter has settled thick over a sleepy village in the Bavarian Alps, ensuring every farmer and servant is indoors the night a parish priest discovers he’s been poisoned. As numbness creeps up his body, he summons the last of his strength to scratch a cryptic sign in the frost.

Hangman Jakob Kuisl, his daughter Magdalena and the town physician’s son team up again – this time with the priest’s aristocratic sister – to investigate a trail of riddles. What they uncover will lead them back to the Crusades, unlocking a troubled history of internal church politics and sending them on a chase for a treasure of the Knights Templar. But they’re not the only ones after the legendary fortune. A team of dangerous and mysterious monks is always close behind, tracking their every move.

The second book – The Hangman’s Daugher –

They are great middle Ages book – it is set up with so many twist turns, and the fart quest to retrive the object that is worth dying for.  I love these books – to be savored, and reread.  Enjoy –

**Note not a Christian Book But all the while worth the read!!
