New Year's Day, 2000. Hunters stumble upon a half-circle of dead bodies lying in the snow near a holiday chalet. The judge and commissaire in charge of the investigation have encountered this suicide sect before. In the chalet they find a leather-bound book. The book of The Faith leads them to the composer, Friedrich Grosz, who is connected to every one of the dead. Surely he must be implicated?

Art, thrillers, history, mystery.
I wouldn't try another book by Patricia Duncker. The story began promisingly with an intriguing opening but drifted off course into inconclusive plot lines, pseudo-religious arguments, and a completely unbelievable ending. Not one of the characters was in any way appealing or convincing.
I'm not sure what genre this books fits into. I enjoy a good thriller with a tightly woven plot but this wasn't it. It was too badly written to have any literary merit.
Maggie Mash did as well as she could with poor material. She has a clear, pleasant voice.
Such a waste of time and money. I would have returned it but but the 'returns period' had expired by the time I had listened to the book.
