ResurrectionBook - 2013
When Inspector Simon Brenner leaves the police force, he's looking forward to some peace and quiet, and the lovely Alpine village of Zell seems like just the place. That is, until the corpses of an American couple are found frozen on a ski lift, and Brenner, doing some part time work for an insurance company, is called in to investigate the matter. It turns out that the victims have relatives in the area, and the crime-- if it is a crime-- seems like it could be a family affair. Except the prime suspect has a solid alibi and no one in picture-perfect Zell is talking. So Brenner, in his inimitable style, draws out all the village's characters-- the longtime residents, the resort staff and guests-- and uncovers the dirty doings that lurk underneath the pristine snow, and family secrets long buried.
