In the Dark by Andreas Pflüger @AndreasPflueger @HoZ_Books

We all know that Head of Zeus rock when it comes to books, I loved them prior to starting blogging, and the book I am reviewing for you is no exception- In the Dark by Andreas Pflüger.

Synopsis Jenny Aaron was a government assassin, part of an elite unit tracking Germany’s most dangerous criminals. She was one of the best, until a disastrous mission ended with her abandoning a wounded colleague and losing her sight forever. Now, five years later, she has learnt to navigate a darkened world, but is haunted by her betrayal. When she is called back to the force to trace a ruthless serial killer, she seizes the opportunity to solve the case and restore her honour.

Strong-willed, fearless – but vulnerable too – Jenny Aaron is a character to stand side by side with Clarice Starling and Lisbeth Salander.

Bestselling European thriller starring a blind special ops agent on the hunt for a terrifying serial killer.

“Extremely gripping, full of twists and turns, filled with action,
constantly surprising”

My review Jenny is an amazing character and it isn’t just because she has learned to live as a blind person. Her character has such depth that it would be impossible to fall in love with her. She is a superhero…ok maybe she isn’t but given her training as an assassin, prior to losing her eyesight, she may as well be one. Daredevil has nothing on her!!

There is a little thing that I looked forward to as I read through, Jenny’s lists. She would write lists about things like likes, dislikes, misses and so on..these lists helped to make her a relatable character.

This is a phenomenally written book and the writing is beautifully translated by Shaun Whiteside.

Meet the Author (1) Andreas Pflüger is a German screenwriter and author. He has written a number of episodes of the hugely popular German police procedural Tatort.
