Mehr über den Autor

Schon als Fünfjährige schrieb die in Münster Geborene ihre erste Geschichte, mit 14 Jahren füllten die Storys schon mehrere Hefte. Und als Nele Neuhaus nach dem Studium von Jura, Geschichte und Germanistik das erste "richtige" Buch geschrieben hatte, ließ sie es "on demand" drucken und vertrieb es selbst. Es verkaufte sich bestens, der Berliner Ullstein-Verlag nahm Nele Neuhaus unter Vertrag, und ihre folgenden Krimis um das Ermittlerduo Oliver von Bodenstein und Pia Kirchhoff machten aus ihr eine Erfolgsautorin. Der Durchbruch gelang ihr 2010 mit dem vierten Band der Taunuskrimi-Reihe. "Schneewittchen muss sterben" stürmte seit Erscheinen im Juni 2010 die Bestsellerlisten, Lizenzen wurden in 21 Länder verkauft, ebenso die Filmrechte. Auch ihr erstes Buch "Unter Haien" eroberte nach der Wiederauflage im Mai 2012 die Top-Position der Bestsellerliste, genauso wie die Taunuskrimis "Wer Wind sät" und "Böser Wolf". Im ZDF wurden die Filme nach Motiven aus Neuhaus' Romanen 'Schneewittchen muss sterben' und "Eine unbeliebte Frau" Quotenhits.
Außerdem schreibt Nele Neuhaus Jugendbücher, in denen es um Pferde geht, denn die Autorin ist leidenschaftliche Pferdeliebhaberin, Reiterin und Züchterin. Ihre Bücher verkauften sich bis heute (Januar 2014) allein in Deutschland über 5 Millionen Mal.
Nele Neuhaus lebt mit ihrem Lebensgefährten und ihrem Hund im Vordertaunus.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gutes Buch 10. Dezember 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Die Story ist spannend und sehr gut geschrieben! Nur leider ist die Übersetzung ins Englische ab und an etwas holprig -da hätte sich eine Korrektur von einem weiteren Übersetzer gelohnt...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gutmenschen 23. Mai 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
In der Gegend leben nur Gutmenschen mit Ausnahme eines jungen Mannes, der ein entlassener Mörder ist und nach seiner Haftentlassung wieder in die dörfliche Gemeinschaft zurückkehrt. Wie langsam dann die Fassade der Gutmenschen zu bröseln beginnt ist hervorragend dargestellt. Sehr spannend geschrieben.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A town without pity... 27. Dezember 2012
Von S. McGee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
... or in this case, a village without pity, one not too distant from the big city of Frankfurt but that is just as tightly-knit and gossipy as the German town in the 1960s movie, and just as willing to dish out its own verdict and deliver its own brand of justice. When Tobias Sartorius is released after serving a 10-year sentence for the murder of two young women, both former girlfriends, he heads home to find his parents divorced, his father on the verge of financial collapse and the rest of the village all too ready to form a vigilante gang to toss him out. He wants to build some kind of new life, however narrow, and childhood friend Nadia, now a television actress and star, is eager to help him. But then his mother is brutally attacked, and another young girl vanishes...

This is all raw material for a very promising dark drama, but it never became one for me. Instead I plodded my way through this, bemused by each fresh plot element tossed into the mix until I came very very close to opening a notebook to keep notes so I could remember who was who; who is fighting against whom; what the various plot strands are, etc. This is ostensibly a thriller focusing on a man trying to prove his innocence not only of an original crime but of a second one, but there are so many distractions that reading this ended up feeling to me like a fairground ride that whips you from one side to another and leaves you dazed and confused. One minute, Tobias's mother is attacked; the next, a body is found; then there's a vigilante attack; then there's another crime. We lurch from medical malpractice to the banking crisis; there are multiple possible cases of older men getting involved with teenage girls; there are coverups of many different crimes. If I stop to think of it, it's actually quite amazing that all these bad guys were running around such a small town, tripping over each other. The detectives are equally confusing; one is grappling with planning permission for a home extension, another with the prospect of a spouse's infidelity. There are scenes that didn't do much for my understanding of either the plot or character, and a bizarre and (to me) implausible twist in the final pages that felt like the proverbial kitchen sink being tossed in for good measure.

Overall, the mystery was obscured by so many varied crimes and criminals of so many kinds that I found myself wondering whether the author was worried about never having the chance to explore all her ideas in future books. At the same time, it seems to me, based on offhand references to events in the past in the lives of Oliver von Bodenstein and Pia Kirchhoff, the two lead detectives, that this isn't the first book in the series; I find it a bit tricky whenever the first book translated/published here is midway through a series, so that may account for some of my general irritability when I finished this. It's not a bad mystery, but I like rich characters and plots that, even if they're complex, don't keep darting off in new directions every few minutes. Red herrings are great, but here the clues are all too evident and sometimes presented in a heavy-handed manner, while the digressions didn't really make the characters come alive or provide depth to the plot.

Not a winner for me, and I doubt I'll try again. The book wasn't helped by a clunky translation that led to some over-the-top florid prose as well as some sentences that I had to re-read to make sure I disentangled the structure.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved This Mystery! 11. Dezember 2012
Von PattyLouise - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Snow White Must Die
by
Nele Neuhaus

My "in a nutshell" summary...

A ten year old crime comes to the surface again when the convicted man...Tobias... is released from prison and returns to his home.

My thoughts after reading this book...

OMG...what a fast paced thrill ride this book was. I never tell the story of a mystery. Mysteries are best left for the reader...the guessing, the action, the surprise, the fear...just the sheer joy of discovering who the real bad guy is...such lovely fun! This book began with a question and just sort of took off. There were great characters...tons of characters that you love to hate. There were so many people who were just hateful. The only thing I knew for sure was that Tobias had to be innocent...I was so positive of this but halfway through this book I began to doubt that! Pia and Oliver...chief detectives...are a likeable duo...each with their own issues. Oliver has marriage woes...
Pia has house issues. I loved the side stories of their respective relationships.

What I loved about this book...

I loved it all...it is a big fat juicy mystery. Its pace is fast...its plot amazing...its characters fascinating. I loved Pia and Oliver as a team. Pia is persistent to the point of probably being annoying...but that makes the book ever so good!

What I didn't love...

The small minded people in this town. The idea that they stuck together and were so mean to Tobias and his father was annoying.

Final thoughts...

I found this book to be one of the best mysteries I have read in a while. It held my interest. It was a delicious fast paced book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Captivating Mystery 28. Dezember 2012
Von Utah Mom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Snow White Must Die was just the kind of thrilling mystery I was looking to read during a recent snow storm that left me housebound. Completely captivating, without too many grisly details, I was compelled to snuggle up and read all day.

Tobias has served his time for the murder of two girls, his former girlfriends, and is returning to the small village where his father still lives. Tobias has every intention of settling back into his quiet life but his mother is pushed from an overpass and is in the hospital. There are graffiti threats on his barn and the villagers taunt him wherever he goes. The police begin investigating the attempted murder of his mother and come across some inconsistencies in the original case. Did Tobias actually murder the girls ten years earlier?

Nele Neuhaus, the international bestselling author, is successful at creating the sinister situation and casting doubt on nearly every character in the village. Adept at sharing the right details, the characters and setting come alive and become more than just stock characters. Even the detectives are alive with details from their personal lives. Well plotted with just enough foreshadowing and clues to keep you guessing until the very end, Snow White Must Die is impossible to put down.

3.0 von 5 Sternen "I served my time and now I'm back." 25. November 2012
Von E. Bukowsky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
The Brothers Grimm could not have come up with a darker tale than Nele Neuhaus's "Snow White Must Die," a thriller that is awkwardly translated from the German by Steven T. Murray. In 2008, thirty-year-old Tobias Sartorius is freed after spending ten years behind bars. Although the evidence against him was circumstantial, Tobi was convicted for murdering two seventeen-year-old girls, Laura Wagner and Stefanie Schneeberger, whose bodies were never found. His hostile neighbors in the small village of Altenhain do not welcome Sartorius back with open arms. On the contrary, they cruelly harass him and his downtrodden father, Hartmut. Tobi's homecoming turns out to be a catalyst for disaster when secrets that had long lain dormant gradually come to light. Ironically, Tobi may be one of the few innocent individuals in a town filled with selfish, hypocritical, greedy, lustful, cowardly, sadistic, and immoral men and women.

In addition to Tobias's reappearance, other developments set off a disastrous chain reaction. For example, forty-one year old Detective Inspector Pia Kirchhoff, of the Hofheim Criminal Police, is called to the scene when a backhoe operator finds skeletal remains in a dilapidated aircraft hangar that is scheduled for demolition. (Kirchhoff's boss, Oliver von Bodenstein is a good cop who is distracted by serious marital problems.) Pia decides to revisit Tobias's case, since she suspects that the wrong person may have been blamed for killing Stefanie and Laura. Violence erupts, another young girl disappears, and events begin to spiral out of control. Among those caught in the fallout are: Thies Terlinden, an autistic man who knows more about the circumstances surrounding Laura and Stefanie's deaths than he dares reveal; an inquisitive seventeen-year-old waitress, Amelie Fröhlich; Nadia von Bredow, Tobi's childhood friend, now a wealthy and successful actress; and cultural minister Gregor Lauterbach and his wife, Daniela, a physician, both prominent members of their community.

"Snow White Must Die" is a hectic and densely plotted police procedural that is so over-the-top that, at times, it is unintentionally funny. Matters are not helped by the stilted dialogue and cheesy writing ("A feeling of foreboding attacked him as suddenly as a raptor" and "Unexpectedly a wave of heat raced through his body and shot into his abdomen like glowing lava"). The author throws everything into the book but the kitchen sink. If you look carefully, the kitchen sink may be in there as well. This story has a soap-opera feel, since the characters engage in extreme misbehavior that includes adultery, betrayal, financial chicanery, medical malpractice, police corruption, and attemped murder. It is strangely entertaining to read this overly long, overwrought, and sometimes campy book just to see what additional rabbits Neuhaus will pull out of her hat.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Snow White Could Have Died in Fewer Pages 21. März 2013
Von Smilealot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was intrigued with the title and ordered "pre-release" since I tend to enjoy police procedurals. There was a perfect storm in this one where a clunky translation, numerous unrelated sub-plots and the ever-looming suspicion that there was plenty of backstory to which the humble reader was not privvy, made this one much less than anticipated. I persevered and finished it but never again-- this writer is not for me.
