Publisher's Summary

Detective Pia Kirchhoff is about to set off on a long-delayed honeymoon when she receives a phone call. An elderly woman has been shot and killed while walking her dog. A short while later, another murder is committed, and the modus operandi is eerily similar: A woman is killed by a bullet that smashes through her kitchen window - and in both cases the same weapon fired the shot. Two more murders follow in short order. None of the victims had enemies, and no one knows why they were singled out.
As fear of the Taunus Sniper grows among the local residents, pressure mounts on Detective Kirchhoff. She and her partner, Oliver von Bodenstein, search for a suspect who appears to murder at will, but as the investigation progresses, the officers uncover a human tragedy.
With a story ripped from the headlines, I Am Your Judge is tightly plotted and delivers surprise twists at every turn.

Disappointed, but unsure if it's the author or translator

I enjoyed the last Nele Neuhaus books enough to keep an eye out for new releases, but a few hours into this disappointing novel, I was reminded how- as much as I enjoyed the Bad Wolf, I remembered being disturbed by some cheesy dialogue and slipshod police work from our stars. This latest effort was surprisingly full of that. I'm giving three stars instead of two because I'm wondering if the translation was part of what went wrong. Language and cultural differences may be a partial culprit. That said, the poor police procedure from our heroes, the hackneyed way certain antagonists were written, the unusually high need to suspend disbelief (& often) and the overly dramatic narration of certain characters were just too much for me. I enjoy Neuhaus's storylines, but this potentially good story arc was just enough to keep me reading until the end, but with a growing irritation by the time I hit the finish line.

If you can keep track of all the characters (some of the foreign, hyphenated names are tricky to remember), the pace, story and characterizations are wonderful. The author does not take refuge in the oh-so-typical gore so common in many current murder mysteries. Rather, she relies on the subtle suggestion of the pending horror of being punished for a mistake committed many years ago. A wonderful whodunit until the very end -- hang onto your hat and enjoy the ride!
