Mehr über den Autor

John Katzenbach wurde 1950 in Princeton, New Jersey, als Sohn einer Psychoanalytikerin geboren. Bereits von ihr lernte er eine Menge über die menschliche Psyche, deren Untiefen er später in seinen Thrillern ergründen sollte. Weitere Erkenntnisse gewann er in seiner jahrelangen Tätigkeit als Gerichtsreporter des "Miami Herald" und der "Miami News". Seine Artikel wurden zudem in mehreren Zeitungen und Zeitschriften abgedruckt. Später machte er sich als Autor selbstständig. Zu seinen bekanntesten Werken, die zum Teil bereits verfilmt wurden, zählen "Der Patient" und "Die Rache". Nur eines ist Katzenbach noch wichtiger als das Schreiben: seine Familie. Mit seiner Frau, der Pulitzerpreisträgerin Madeleine Blais, und seinen Kindern lebt er in Amherst, Massachusetts. Foto: © Juliana Orihuela

Amazon.de

Simon Winter was once one of the best cops on the Miami homicide beat, but now he's just another retired guy with no relatives. He sticks his trusty gun in his mouth--and just as he's about to squeeze the trigger, his neighbor Sophie Millstein pounds on his door.

Sophie, a Holocaust survivor, says she's just caught sight of Der Schattenmann (the Shadow Man), who hunted down the Jews of Berlin. He was a "catcher," a Jewish man who worked for the Gestapo. Once you glimpsed the Shadow Man, nobody ever saw you again. But Sophie just saw him, she's sure of it, right here in Miami!

Simon doubts it, but when Sophie is murdered, he doesn't believe that Leroy "Hightops" Jefferson, the crack addict seen sprinting out of her apartment with her jewelry, did the deed. Why was Sophie's cat strangled? And when another Holocaust survivor dies, why does his suicide note omit one letter of his wife's name? Did he write it at gunpoint? Simon and young sleuths Walter Robinson and Espy Martinez hunt the Shadow Man, and even Leroy winds up showing a streak of heroism.

Besides a clever premise, Katzenbach--a Miami Herald veteran--packs a lot of vivid local color into his Edgar-nominated mystery about a town where drug killings are so common the cops call them "felony littering." But the characters are simplistic and the narrative pace sluggish by comparison with Katzenbach's World War II POW murder mystery, Hart's War. --Tim Appelo -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting plot 7. August 2001
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
A thrilling book based on an interesting background. 50 years after the war, Jewish holocaust-survivors are enjoying their lives at Miami. Suddenly a number of mysterious suicides and murders are happening. Some survivors believe they are recognizing a man who meant death if he saw them. They believe it's the Shadow man, a Jew collaborating with Nazis during the war. Detectives and survivors try to bring light into this mystery.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Better than you think 10. Juli 2006
Format:Taschenbuch
When I first started this book I thought it would be something which progressed slowly. But I turned out to be wrong! I wouldn't call it fast paced but once you've started reading, you'll find it's hard to put down. The story-line was easy to follow and it was intresting, which is a very important part. However, I spotted a few mistakes in the spoken German at the beginning, eg. 'Vas'. I am learning German and know it should be spelt 'was'. Don't let this small mistake discourage you from reading such a good book though. Also, you'll love-The Quest von Giorgio Kostantinos, an incredible novel!

3.0 von 5 Sternen OK I suppose.....I've read better! 1. August 2004
Format:Taschenbuch
For some reason, I just couldn't get into this book. I think it was partly the characters in the book who really annoyed me. Then there was the black drug dealer, which struck me as a bit of a typical stereotype (why do all drug dealers have to be black?) and then the retired policeman who first tries to shoot himself in despair and suddenly he's changed his mind, got the gun back on, doing the Dirty Harry routine. The background to the story is intriguing - that within the Gestapo, there was a Jewish Bureau of Investigation, the "Catchers", Jews who were spared their lives if they would hunt down other Jews and send them to the camps. This is all factual stuff, it really happened, but obviously not something that Israel would want to acknowledge. In this book, a catcher who survived the war now goes around killing anyone who saw him in the war and could still identify him fifty years later....the story goes from Miami to Berlin with one black detective, one old retired detective and one Latino prosecutor determined to catch the Catcher...man, let's hear it for equal opportunities!
Overall the book was OK but nothing to write home about. Not one of Katzenbach's best. Hart's War is better.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing, gripping thriller 4. April 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I've always been a fan of Mr. Katzenbach, and so I jumped at the chance to read Shadow Man, and Boy, was I surprised. This gripping thriller is both thoughtful and chilling, as a small group of concentration camp survives are picked off one by one by the title character, a Jew who hunted other Jews for the Nazis in WW2. Only two cops stand in his way, one white and retired, the other young and black. Together they must solve the mystery, before there is no-one left to say, and the killer disappears into the shadows once more. As usual, Katzenbach's vivid descriptions of Miami add flavor to the mix, and this deep look at a dark chapter in Jewish history makes the novel even more compulsive. An original winner.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Big disapointment 10. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
After reading Just cause that was unbelievable good I had huge expectations from this book. However this book is not as half as good as Just Cause. It starts good and then the story keeps deteriorating and becomes unreliable and unrealistic. That is a shame since the idea is very good and the author has proven that he knows how to write.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A very readable book! 9. Februar 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
Unlike some of the other reviews offered herein, I found this book quite refreshing. It offered a story that moved at a decent pace and offered some unlikely heroes. While this book isn't the best book I've read, it was quite compelling in its storyline. I found it immensely refreshing to find that the protagonists were not your everyday, run-of-the-mill "supermans". If you want to find a story that compels you to read further, yet without "suspending disbelief" too much, then this is the book to read. If you search for "the" book to define suspense fiction, maybe you should look elsewhere, however, if you want to find a diverting story, with nice balance, read this book! I'm going to read more from Katzenbach.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Mediocre and unbelievable
This was a suddenly quiverred, flutterred, weakened talent typically shown by J.K., especially, after he wrote his power-house "JUST CAUSE"(The only readable one). Lesen Sie weiter...
