an inventive, forceful, engrossing revenge thriller -- Marcel Berlins * THE TIMES * Completely enthralling. A beautifully written novel that really gets into the psyche of the female vigilante . . . I certainly hope that we hear more from this promising young Austrian author * THE CRIME WARP * European crime fiction at its best * RAVEN CRIME READS * Fast, edgy and gripping . . . full of quirks, with a conflicted heroine as killer at its heart. Do not miss it. * DAILY MAIL * An inventive, forceful, engrossing revenge thriller * THE TIMES * Aichner is one of the stars of Austrian crime fiction. This strongly written bestseller synthesises elements from Kill Bill and the Lisbeth Salander books to grimly mesmerising effect. -- Barry Forshaw * FINANCIAL TIMES * Blum is a great character and when Aichner's ghost-train plot ends in the only place it can - a crematorium - you feel like cheering * THE GUARDIAN * A wonderful thriller about love and retribution - playful, dark and dangerous - I read it in one sitting * William Ryan * There is a wicked and thrilling high concept to the story, lots of action, and a sexy and dangerous female protagonist. * CRIME FICTION LOVER * Woman of the Dead is a horrifying thriller with strong links to Jeff Linday's Dexter . . . Aichner's character is so strongly realised that, like Dexter, the reader wills her on to succeed. Woman of the Dead will surprise as it horrifies. * SYDNEY MORNING HERALD * Aichner has a talent for keeping readers hooked - this is a gripping read and the character of Blum lives long in the mind. * TELEGRAPH * An ironclad guarantee of sleepless nights * INDEPENDENT * One of the most arresting thrillers I've read for years. Hypnotic! Aichner plumbs the darkest depths of the human psyche in this compelling tale of a female undertaker. As a mother, Blum is touching and relatable. But as a vengeful wife determined to hunt down her husband's killers... Be afraid. Be very, very afraid. -- Lisa Gardner
