The year is 1662. Alpine village hangman Jakob Kuisl receives a letter from his sister calling him to the imperial city of Regensburg, where a gruesome sight awaits him: her throat has been slit. Arrested and framed for the murder, Kuisl faces first-hand the torture he’s administered himself for years.

Jakob’s daughter, Magdalena, and a young medicus named Simon hasten to his aid. With the help of an underground network of beggars, a beer-brewing monk, and an Italian playboy, they discover that behind the false accusation is a plan that will endanger the entire German Empire.

    " Just finished this the third in the the Hangmans Daughter series. It is by far the best yet. It could stand alone but reading the first two gives additional richness to the experience. I do love historical novels and this one does not disappoint. Looking forward to the 4th in the series due out this summer. If you are looking forward to a good mystery, love story, and perspective of another time and place, this is a great read!! "
