Die Morde mit den roten Schleifen
Perfect Day - Romy Hausmann

Nach 14 Jahren klicken die Handschellen. Jahrelang sind Mädchen im Alter zwischen sechs und zehn Jahren verschwunden. Der Mörder hat mit roten Schleifen der Polizei den Weg zu den Leichen gezeigt. Hinter den Taten soll der renommierte Philosophieprofessor und Anthropologe Walter Lesniak stecken. Er wird in Anwesenheit seiner Tochter Ann verhaftet. Zehn Morde wirft man ihm vor. Aber Ann ist überzeugt von seiner Unschuld und will diese nun beweisen….

 

„Perfect Day“ ist ein Thriller von Romy Hausmann.

 

Meine Meinung:
Der Aufbau ist recht komplex. Es gibt eine Vielzahl an kurzen Kapiteln und verschiedene Erzählperspektiven. Erzählt wird unter anderem im Präsens aus der Ich-Perspektive aus der Sicht von Ann. Eingefügt sind zudem Gesprächsprotokolle, Zeitungsartikel und Tagebucheinträge. Zeitlich springt der Thriller hin und her. Orts- und Zeitangaben helfen jedoch bei der Orientierung.

 

Der Schreibstil ist auf den ersten Blick unauffällig, auf den zweiten allerdings gut durchdacht. Die Sprache ist authentisch und durchaus variantenreich. Sie wechselt zwischen den einzelnen Erzählperspektiven.

 

Ann steht im Vordergrund der Geschichte. Sie und die anderen Protagonisten bleiben distanziert und sind keine Sympathieträger. Das passt jedoch zum Genre und lässt Raum für Verdächtigungen und Spekulationen.

 

Der Thriller ist vor allem zu Beginn sehr undurchsichtig und verwirrend, aber auch atmosphärisch. Die psychologische Spannung baut sich nur langsam auf. Der Anfang war für mich ein wenig zäh. Dann aber hat mich die rund 400 Seiten umfassende Geschichte gefesselt und dank mehrerer Wendungen zum Miträtseln gebracht. Die Auflösung wirkt schlüssig und war für mich überraschend.

 

Das Cover trifft nicht ganz meinen Geschmack, hat jedoch einen hohen Wiedererkennungswert. Der für das Genre recht ungewöhnliche Titel gefällt mir.

 

Mein Fazit:
Mit „Perfect Day“ hat Romy Hausmann einen Psychothriller geschrieben, der mich fast komplett überzeugt hat. Es wird mit Sicherheit nicht das letzte Buch der Autorin bleiben, das ich lesen werde.

6 Things to Consider to Find the Perfect Property for Yourself

 

Without a doubt, when you buy a home, it is going to be one of the major financial investments in your life. As a grand decision like this, it only makes sense to invest not only money but also time and effort in research. That way you can choose a home that not only fits your current needs but also the future. To be successful, you should consult the following guide on what you need to consider, to find the perfect property: 

  • Consider the area you want to live in – ask any estate agent what the most important factor for choosing a property is, and the majority of them will tell you it is location. The area you choose to live in is probably as important as the very home you choose to live in. To that end, you have to be realistic about what you can afford. Ask yourself what sort of setting you prefer – suburban, rural, urban. Will you be commuting to work and how long is it going to take you, based on existing transport links. All of these factors go into consideration for the area you want to live in. 

  • Always plan long-term – some first-time buyers just feel like getting their foot on the property ladder, before they switch places after several years. However, the reality is that people end up living in the same home for a longer period than they tend to estimate at first. Therefore, it is important to consider that and go for a future-proof home. Moving frequently is very expensive, so you may want to buy a home that can support you grow into it. This is all the more important if your plans feature having a family and children.  

  • It is possible to stretch yourself – when you consider all of the factors surrounding owning a home, you have to keep in mind the fact that it usually gets more affordable the more you live there. Your costs for furniture and home improvements will gradually decrease over time. The cost of your mortgage won’t increase significantly and most only vary with the interest rate. If you can raise your monthly income, which is possible save from losing your job, you should be able to afford the property you live in after just a few years. 

  • What are the trade-offs? – finding the property of your dreams is highly unlikely, and most often you will make trade-offs. But sometimes those are just hidden opportunities. For example, if you don’t mind the noise of a busy road, you can pay a lower price. If there is a big school next to a property, it is likely to be quite noisy, which wouldn’t bother you if you are out of the home during school hours. 

  • Pay better attention to fundamentals – many factors fall in the superficial category, and then there are fundamentals. Being able to distinguish both is of utmost importance. For example, changing the colour scheme of your home is doable, but you cannot do much about the total floor area. If there are any ugly features, you can expect the value to drop, but at the same time, they may be very easy to remove. 

  • Use an agent to help you out – many first-time buyers fall into the trap of making costly mistakes. The risks can be minimised if they choose an estate agent to guide them through the process, and help them each step of the way.

EIGHT PERFECT MURDERS by Peter Swanson
Eight Perfect Murders - Peter Swanson

Wow! What a story. Malcolm Kershaw made a list of books in which he considered the perfect murders occurred. Now that list is coming back to haunt him.

 

I don't want to say much about this so I don't give anything away. This book grabbed me from the start and did not let go. The ending was wild and is Mal a reliable narrator or not?
