Blue Night by Simone Buchholz

Translated by Rachel Ward

This is the first in a series starring Chastity Riley. Blue Night by Simone Buchholz. This has been a huge hit in Germany and now translated by Rachel Ward. This was a gripping and superbly written thriller that I got through in two sittings. I can see why it was a number one bestseller in Germany. It will be interesting to see how it is now received here in the UK but deserves to be a hit.

Chastity career has hit the rocks after being successful in a previous case of corruption that went in house. Now she is wondering what is to become of her own career following this case. Chastity is one tough prosecutor in Hamburg. But now she has a case that will give her want she really wants. Being good at what she is a main prosecutor.

A man is under police guard I the local hospital and he has been beaten up so badly and he is almost broken in every sense of the word and even worse. A case of mutilation. This man is keeping quiet and not speaking to anyone. This is the sort of case that Chastity really enjoys and excels in. Over time she begins to bring the man out of his shell and starts to gain trust. But trust is earned both ways. Then it becomes clear just what Chastity is really facing and suddenly she has to use all her skills she has learned and her initiative to crack this case.

Make no mistake Blue Night is a gritty and raw crime novel that brings German Crime noir to the British reader.

Simone Buchholz pulls no punches in this the first in an exciting series. This is stunning new novel that really ends up exploding in your face. If this is how you love your thriller, then Blue Night is one for you. It is not a long read at under 300 pages you should easily get through this in a weekend. I dare you to put this one down! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
