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?

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.
