Description

In 1668, hangman Jakob Kuisl, his daughter Magdalena, and her husband Simon are traveling to the town of Bamberg. But what was planned as a family vacation soon becomes a nightmare: there is a murderer in Bamberg leaving the severed limbs of victims in the trash outside the city. When rumors quickly spread that the murders are the work of a werewolf, Jakob Kuisl must prove the superstition wrong and embark on a search for the "devil of Bamberg". This thrilling fifth entry in Oliver Pötzsch's Hangman's Daughter series follows the continuing adventures and mysteries that surround the Kuisl family.

A Great Historical Thriller!

Werewolf of Bamberg is an excellent addition to the Hangman’s Daughter series. It's a captivating mystery full of drama, suspense, action, and great characters. The author did an amazing job of researching the actual time period, and weaves enough historical places and people into the story making it very convincing and entertaining. While this a complex story with multiple POV's, it flows nicely and will keep you guessing.

Jakob, the Schongau hangman, and his family head to Bamberg for his brother’s wedding. They soon discover several citizens of Bamberg are going missing and some of their bodies turn up, and show signs of being tortured (or at least some body parts are turning up). Then there is talk about werewolf attacks, and soon the whole town is in a frenzy, and people are accusing others of being a werewolf.

While the mystery of who is conducting these werewolf attacks intensifies, there's plenty of family drama, especially with Jakob and his brother. They have not seen each other in years, and argue all the time. These two characters had me laughing. The family drama ties in nicely with the story, and there is never a dull moment

Jakob who is my favorite character is blunt, grumpy, tough, and drives his family crazy by keeping them in suspense when he comes up with a hunch or is devising a plan. His "particular skill" makes him a great detective, who else can pick up a severed arm, and determine the sex, age, the fact the person had Gout, was tortured, and what they did for a living.

The narrator was faultless and did an amazing job. Overall, this is great historical mystery with elements of truth. Anyone who is a fan of history, and loves a good mystery, will enjoy this story. Caution: if you have not listened to the other books in the series, I strongly suggesting starting with book one. All the stories are great, and the characters are developed over the series.

Worth the time and credit.

Worth more than a single Credit.

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.

Outstanding!!!

This is an entirely satisfying and entertaining historical mystery w/ noteworthy factual and fictional vividness... This is the best work of the series thus far, and the author shows some serious chops along w/ an ascendant improvement in his craft... The mystery itself is thoughtful and tantalizing, rife w/obvious and not so obvious clues, and simply delightful red herrings;). You'll get everything you need to figure it out, but good luck w/ that;). The historical setting compliments the mystery richly indeed... The pace of the story is perfectly set w/ punctuated action and thrills... The picture of class inequality, imprisonment, and bigotry is dark and sobering... Don't be so sure you know where the true monstrousness resides... There's assuredly some mirroring to modern prejudices... The characters are magnificent, both the likeable and unlikeable... All the Kuisls put the fun back in disfuntion;). I especially enjoy Jakob of course, but Bartol grew on me largely due to the genuine soul hidden beneath the torturer's shell... How can you not like a character that loves his dogs so much.... He's right, they do have better souls than us... The narration is nothing short of superb, and the total product is a book most anyone will thoroughly enjoy, especially fans of historical mystery fiction... Absolutely worth the credit, but you might want to start the series from the beginning to be fully in the know, but it can be read as a stand alone...

Scary Werewolves

This novel is based off facts. It is fanticnating. They have documentations of werewolves all over Germany and Bavaria. They had many witch trials. I am suprised at all the killings and cruelty. Witch trials were common. There are are torture museums in Italy but not for children or people weak of heart.

Love this series

This was another great story in this series by Oliver Potzsch. It was book 5 and I hope there are more to come. I love the characters and writing style. I enjoy historical novels with a sense of mystery. In this particular time period, people were very superstitious. Whenever I read one of this author's novels, I chuckle to myself several times throughout because this author always describes bad smells; such as the smell of feces, rat droppings, and rotting garbage or flesh. I read the audio version of this book and the narrator is one of my favorites. It was read by Grover Gardner. I love his accents & voices. He adds so much to an already good story.

Ugh, The same old thing.

Is there such a thing as plagiarizing your own work? In this case, I think so. A different setting, same old theme. Hangmen's families are outcasts and "Necessary evils", over and over. The tension between the characters was repeated so much I wanted to skim through – or in this case, fast forward. I get it already. This guy hates that guy, still hates that guy, and still…
"Who could it be? What would they do?" These lines were repeated in so many ways with slim variations, that I wanted to be the hangman... and chop off the story right there.

Very unique mystery!

I have thoroughly enjoyed each of your books! The Hangman's family is a typical family where each member has strengths and weaknesses but they all come together when needed to solve the mystery. The author takes you down several likely paths before you come to the end. The truth in history is stranger than fiction.

Lots of POV in this one.

The Kuisl family is traveling again, this time to see Jakob's brother's wedding. They've only been there a short time when terrible rumors of a werewolf prowling the countryside, and even the town streets, are circulating full force. And then things take a turn for the worst. Barbara falls for an actor!

Great story that fits in with the rest of the series. The series started with Jakob and Magdalena and the cast has grown as the younger Kuisl's get older and everyone marries. It's more jumping around than I care for. This was #5 in a series of seven so far. Hopefully the rest don't include the entire family at once.
