Devil in the Countryside

A Novel Based on True Events by Cory Barclay 

Storyline: It’s 1588, the height of the Reformation, and a killer is terrorizing the German countryside. There are reports that the legendary Werewolf of Bedburg has returned to a once-peaceful land. Heinrich Franz, a cold and calculating investigator, is tasked with finding whomever –or whatever– the killer might be. He’ll need all the help he can get, including that of a strange hunter who’s recently stumbled into town. Though they’re after the same thing, their reasons are worlds apart. And through it all, a priest tries to keep the peace among his frightened townsfolk, while a young woman threatens his most basic beliefs. In a time when life is cheap and secrets run rampant, these four divergent souls find themselves entwined in a treacherous mystery, navigating the volatile political and religious landscape of 16th century Germany, fighting to keep their sanity… and their lives.

Wow! Okay so this book was indeed a thrilling crime mystery.. which I’ll be honest isn’t usually my type of book, but this one! Oh my goodness it was great!! It has everything I think people would want in this genre of book…It was creepy, thrilling, eerie, a little bit insane (in a good way) and just overall I think it was quite amazing. The book makes you feel so invested in the characters individual stories as well as the whole story and the writing style is quite nice, and flows so smoothly. The last few chapters got a bit boring but the epilogue made up for that significantly! Especially that last page! My word! 

I rate this book
