The story is set in a small town in Germany but could have been anywhere. Robert Fass was perfect for the narration. I don't know any German but his pronunciation of the German names and places sounded authentic to me.
If you like a fast paced mystery as full of plot twists as a can of worms, you will love Snow White Must Die.

Snow White Must Die / Nele Neuhaus
“Snow White Must Die” – which has 3 million copies in print in 15 countries – does an excellent job of exploring small-town venality as Kirchoff begins to suspect that it takes a village to cover up a murder. There are no magic mirrors or dwarves, but there are enough poisonous secrets lying fallow to take care of an entire apple orchard.”

“The global reach of crime writers already famous in Europe is expanding far beyond the ubiquitous works of U.K. and Scandinavian writers. American readers can now enjoy this well-crafted novel from Nele Neuhaus, one of Germany's popular mystery writers. Tobias Sartorius, 30, paid the price after being convicted of killing two teenage girls whose bodies were never found. He's done his time but the residents of the small town where he grew up and where his father lives are far from welcoming. You can sense the townspeople are hiding something and Neuhaus builds the tension when another girl goes missing and Tobias is blamed. This novel is bursting with conspiracy and subterfuge and a raw exposition of the ugliness that can inhabit the human soul. Like detectives Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein, readers won't stop until the shocking ending is finally revealed.” 3 out of 4 Stars ~USA Today
“exciting and well-crafted” ~The Wall Street Journal
“Neuhaus is a writer for whom more is better, so that every time we think this mystery is drawing to a satisfactory close, we confront more extreme situations: revelatory paintings behind hidden panels, flooded dungeons, widespread insanity masked by sweet smiles. As its title suggests, “Snow White Must Die” possesses some of the excess and off-kilter eeriness of the original Grimms’ fairy tale, before Disney came along to give Snow White a princess makeover in pastels.” ~The Washington Post
“The narration worked well and I would imagine that Robert Fass’ delivery will satisfy any listener. Characters were clearly differentiated although I would have found additional delineation/characterization through varied cadences and more character-specific emotional delivery to be beneficial. The narrative and character dialogue was, as I would expect in a translated work, delivered primarily in American accent. Proper nouns, however, were given their full German-accented pronunciation which I appreciated tremendously. Male/female vocal range separation was done well, the narrative voice was distinct, pacing was excellent, the delivery was smooth, and production was top-notch.” ~The Oddiophile
