From the Editor

Good chemistry between an unlikely pair of detectives can really get me hooked on a new crime series, and as the duo introduced in Time Heals No Wounds get to know one another, their rapport feels at once fresh and instantly familiar. The dynamics created by partnering an energetic novice with a quirky and independent-minded expert had me from page one.

Hannes Niehaus is brand new to his job, and his attention is not exclusively focused on police work—he has not yet let go of his athletic ambition, and he spends his mornings training for the Summer Olympics. But he’s excited to learn from his partner, Detective Chief Fritz Janssen, homicide, who is so experienced he can smell the next clue before it surfaces. There is no motive Fritz hasn’t heard of, and he excels at putting himself in the killer’s shoes. At first the two investigators have little in common, as Fritz is none too impressed by Hannes’s interests outside the force, and regardless, he prefers to work alone. But this gives Fritz something to razz Hannes about, and soon they are laughing together. As evidence comes to light, the bond between Hannes and Fritz builds—and so does their case.

And in the end, after some jaw-dropping twists and turns I won’t spoil for you, I found myself wishing for more bodies to turn up along the craggy Baltic Sea coast so I could see these detectives in action again. Luckily I don’t have to wait too long for the sequel, The Northern Cross.

Product Description

Product Description

Freshly trained detective Johannes “Hannes” Niehaus is brand-new to the Criminal Investigation Department. And his partner, unconventional veteran detective Fritz Janssen, isn’t the least bit thrilled to train a rookie.

When a woman’s body washes up on the nearby shores of the Baltic Sea, Hannes gets his first taste of real crime—and a chance to prove himself. Quickly the investigation pulls him and Fritz into a whirlpool of dangerous, decades-old cover-ups. As the death count rises, the clues begin to lead them back to the Third Reich—and to harrowing crimes some people will do anything to keep hidden.

With the dead woman’s beautiful assistant to protect and a missing girl to find, Hannes navigates an ever-twisting maze of concealed horrors and enduring vendettas. Will he be able to catch the murderer before another innocent life gets caught in the killer’s dark plan?

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a somber and heavy mystery, as anything written during the Nazi regime is. As its a German to English translation it's quite original in its delivery. Some things were lost in translation and some of the dialogue quite choppy, so it's not an easy read. It is effectively a police procedural crime novel about a criminal who enacts revenge against criminals.
We follow our protagonist - a rookie detective who is charged with solving these crimes. There are definitely some interesting twists and turns that differ from most murder mysteries that make this unique.
Time Heals No Wounds is a modern look at how people suffered at the hands of the Nazis. If you are looking for something to challenge your mind and keep you guessing this could work in the cold of winter in front of a fire but don't expect a light, easy read. It's a 3.5/4 stars from me.

I think that the book was probably excellent in the original German, but the translation feels awkward. Perhaps if Whispersynced with a narrator at least semifluent in German it would come across better. The procedural aspects ring fairly true, and the interpersonals do as well. Impressive character development. All that being said, I found it riveting despite the pesky annoyances. See publisher's blurb for clues, no spoilers here.

This would be one of the worst books I have read and finished. The story was just plausible for the first half of the book but then spiralled out of reality. The motivation for the crimes was thin and the characters changed their "raison d'etre" in the final 50 pages. I continue to ask myself "Why did I finish this book?" The answer may be that I am an optimist!
