Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"The Beggar King is a richly appointed historical novel, a compelling tapestry of violence, intrigue, and tenderness. Pötzsch drags you into his beautifully rendered and dangerous seventeenth-century Europe and doesn't let you escape until the final climactic page."
—Glenn Cooper, international bestselling author of Secret of the Seventh Son


"Twists and turns enmesh both the characters and the reader in this absorbing tale that captures, with an authenticity that is truly rare, the sounds and sights and smells of seventeenth-century Germany. A gripping story of love, betrayal, and long-delayed revenge."
—James Becker, author of The Moses Stone

 

"The Beggar King weaves a fascinating web of intrigue that invokes much more than just the intricate politics of 17th-century Germany. Oliver Pötzsch has brought to life the heady smells and tastes, the true reality of an era we've never seen quite like this before. The hangman Jakob and his feisty daughter Magdalena are characters we will want to root for in many books to come."—Katherine Neville, bestselling author of The Eight and The Magic Circle

 

Praise for The Dark Monk

"Swift and sure, compelling as any conspiracy theory, persuasive as any spasm of paranoia, The Dark Monk grips you at the base of your skull and doesn't let go."
—Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked and Out of Oz

"Oliver Pötzsch takes readers on a darkly atmospheric visit to seventeenth-century Bavaria in his latest adventure. With enough mystery and intrigue to satisfy those who like gritty historical fiction, The Dark Monk has convincing characters, rip-roaring action, and finely-drawn settings."
—Deborah Harkness, author of A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night

"Weaving together the mystery of a murdered priest, a Templar treasure, and a kind-hearted hangman, Oliver Pötzsch's The Dark Monk is a labyrinth of clues and rich characters in seventeenth-century Bavaria. Pötzsch keeps the action boiling, the clues intriguing, and the history fascinating and authentic."
—William Dietrich, author of The Emerald Storm

Kurzbeschreibung

The third installment of the international bestselling Hangman’s Daughter series

1662: Jakob Kuisl, the hangman of Schongau, 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. When the city constable discovers Kuisl alongside the corpse, he locks him in a dungeon, where Kuisl will experience firsthand the torture he has administered himself for years.

Kuisl’s steely daughter, Magdalena, and her young doctor paramour, Simon, rush to Regensburg and try to save Jacob. 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.

Das 3. Buch der "hangman's daughter"-Geschichten war für mich durchaus lesenswert. Sicher, es gibt Wiederholungen, um Leser, die ein Folgebuch als erstes lesen, mit in die Geschichte hinein zu nehmen.
Aber alles in allem war das Buch spannend und es hat Spaß gemacht es zu lesen.
Ich denke, ich würde auch einen 4.Band vertragen.

Not bad - but my last purchase from Amazon until and unless the stories re Amazon's abysmal treatment of temporary staff turn out to be lies or Amazon mends its ways.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great addition to the Hangman's Daughter series 11. Dezember 2016
Von Alan Mills - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The hangman gets a letter from his sister, asking him to come to her aid as she is gravely ill. A few days later, his daughter and her boyfriend, Simon the doctor, leave town to start a fresh life where no one knows them. Unknown to each other, the hangman and his daughter are both headed to the same town, where intrigue awaits them.

Upon arrival, the hangman is immediately accused of a crime, and his daughter sets out to try and help him. Alone in a strange city, they all must try and figure out who their friends and allies are, why the hangman was framed, and how to unravel the multiple layers of conspiracy, stretching back a quarter century.

Along the way, we learn much about the hangman's back story, and about the complex class structure that constituted a European city on the 1600's--beggars, outcasts, peasants, tradesmen, priests, and the aristocracy. The complicated relationships between them provides the back drop for this story, and lends it much of its richness of character.

Highly recommended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Epic Tale set in Regensburg 4. November 2015
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is an epic tale centering around Regensburg, Bavaria. The hangman receives a letter from his sister in Regensburg, who is quite ill, requesting that he come to her. He travels to Regensburg. He is promptly detained. When he is released the next day, he goes to his sister and brother-in-law's bathhouse where he finds their bodies, both with slit throats. He, of course, is immediately arrested and accused of murder. A summary trial and conviction follow. Unfortunately, he immediately becomes acquainted with the hangman of Regensburg who tries to torture a confession from him. In the meantime, Magdalene and Simon travel to Regensburg together to start a new life. They meet a funny little man who is the Venetian ambassador. The Venetian ambassador is smitten with Magdalene and pursues her throughout the book. Once they learn of the hangman's conviction they immediately try to free him. To do this, they enlist the aid of the beggar king, Nathan. He is ruler of the underworld of beggars and has immense power. Throughout the novel, in an attempt to free the hangman , several other threads of the plot come to light and it soon appears that the murders of the hangman's sister and her husband were an attempt to hide a monstrous plot which, if successful, has implications for all Europe. Of course, all the various subplots come together and the hangman, Magdalene and Simon manage to defeat all evildoers. This is an absorbing book, and the author's love of Regensburg is evident through many descriptive scenes . This is an excellent historical mystery, and one I highly recommend. This is by far the best book in the series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Historical fiction...action packed...twists & turns...far-fetched...who can be trusted? 24. März 2013
Von Lynn 🌼 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This is the third book I've read in The Hangman's Daughter series. All three have been action packed with twists & turns. The Beggar King, even more far-fetched than the Dark Monk, introduces us to a large Bavarian city, when Jakob Kuisl travels to Regensberg to visit his sister who is near death. Upon arriving in Regensberg & being accused of murdering his sister & brother-in-law, Jakob is thrown into prison where the torture begins. Shortly after Jakob is accused of murdering his sister, Magdelina's life & the lives of her mother & siblings are threatened in Schongau so Magedelina & Simon flee to Regensberg to begin a new life together...and the action-packed story full of twists & turns goes on from there.

Who can help Magdelina unravel the mystery & find the man/men/reason her father was framed & is now being tortured. Who can she or Simon trust? The raftmaster, the beggar king or perhaps Silvio, the Venetian ambassador...well, maybe the bishop's brewmaster can provide a safe haven. You'll have to read the book to find out.

Although the story line is even more far-fetched than the first two in this series, & many of the characters are larger than life, I'm enjoying reading about life in the 17th century Bavaria with their villages/towns/cities full of reeking garbage & excrement piles left on street corners or alleyways for the hangman to pick up. The author loves this area so much that he provided an interesting 'Traveler's Guide to Regensberg' at the end of the book.

>>>There are some torture details & bloody scenes in the book that the squeamish might not want to read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Number Three's Not A Charm 2. Juli 2015
Von Matt Mansfield - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Well, all good things have to come to... a tapering off, if not an end.

Oliver Potzsch's 2013 book, "The Beggar King," is the third in his mystery series starting with the "The Hangman's Daughter" (2008) and followed by "The Dark Monk" (2009). The first two have been both interesting and entertaining romps around Bavaria during the mid-17th century (see my Amazon reviews: "Twisty Tale of Bavarian Dark Deeds" on 3/14/2014 and "Tempting Templar Treasure" on 12/22/2014).

“The Beggar King” shows signs of the characters and storyline getting a little tired.

Once again, Jacob Kuisl, the hangman of Schongau in Bavaria, his fetching daughter, Magdalena, and her earnest lover and would-be doctor, Simon Fronweiser, are caught up in mysterious events. This time the dark deeds are in neighboring Regensburg, the free town and assembly place for the soon-to-be Reichstag of the German Empire rulers.

In quick order the Schongau hangman is imprisoned for being implicated in a killing of his own sister and her husband, bathhouse operators and would-be alchemists. The Regensburg Inner Council takes a dim view of this type of family affairs and does to the hangman what he has done to others. But there seems to be room for suspecting ulterior motives for at least one of the judges.

Meanwhile, Magdalena and Simon rush into the situation trying to save Jacob but get sidetracked into some bewildering distractions: upscale balls with Magdalena doing an Eliza Doolittle; Simon sharing a round with the bishop's brew master; much pondering about a mysterious blue-white powder with strange properties; traipsing around with Nathan The Wise, head of the Regensburg beggars.

While some of the details are historically accurate - the unrealized impact of moldy bread on the senses and return of the plague (Daniel Defoe wrote about the plague outbreak in London about this time) - many of the other details about medical practices, living conditions and diet, lack of cleanliness have been covered again and again in the first two books so the novelty is wearing thin.

Additionally, the antics of the three principles seem over the top and, at times, silly. The arguments between Magdalena and Simon are distracting and seem out-of-focus given the enormity of the situation they are facing. Jacob, who is "not dead yet" from the detailed torture administered to him, somehow revives in time to save situations like a silent film hero.

And, of course, much of the action takes place underground in claustrophobic murky conditions - a device Potzsch has used frequently in his prior two books of this series. You have the feeling of living in a not-so-delightful Hieronymus Bosch painting.

All said, the first two Hangman's Daughter Tales were great but the third one is starting to grate.
4.0 von 5 Sternen 3d in the series but it's getting a bit boring 4. Mai 2015

As with the Dark Monk, this got a bit tedious. It does give you a good insight into what life in the cities back then may have been like, how helpless those without money probably felt because the law was not equally applied to everyone. It kind of made me wonder about how the hangman could get so often hurt and still live through it considering the medicine available back then. And considering most people could not read back then, there certainly seem to be an awful lot of folks reading notes and messages in these books, even though Potzsch does mention that most people couldn't read or write and used only and X to sign with.
