A good pacy story and I really enjoyed the author's words at the end. I am not sure if this is the fault of the translator but there were many instances of contemporary speech patterns which did not fir the historical context. The independent and unconventional female and her lover were slightly unconvincing. However on the level of an adventure story it was entertaining enough.

I've become very fond of Mr Potzsch's books. His Schongau hangman and assorted members of his family, adversaries and colleagues are very well drawn. This book is the one I have enjoyed the most so far. The story moves to another wonderful German city and engages us with another hangman, who has a major dilemma for all concerned. My favourite new character in this novel was the Venetian ambassador, so excellently characterised right to the final chapter. As always, Grover Gardner's narration is impeccable. I can't wait to listen to the next in the series.
I love these hangman stories! Great story. Great performance! This is the 3rd Hangman's Daughter book I have read and I love them all!

I bought the first book on a fluke and loved every minute. Since then, I've listened to the whole series, and passionately awaiting the next issue.
