Die Henkerstochter

READ ↠ Die Henkerstochter Magdalena the clever and headstrong daughter of Bavarian hangman Jakob Kuisl lives with her father outside the village walls and is destined to be married off to another hangman’s son except that the town physician’s son is hopelessly in love with her And her father’s wisdom and empathy are as unusual as his despised profession It is 1659 the Thirty Years’ War has finally ended and there. Under torture you are as if under the dominion of those grasses that produce visions Everything you have heard told everything you have read returns to your mind as if you were being transported not toward heaven but toward hell Under torture you say not only what the inuisitor wants but also what you imagine might please him because a bond this truly diabolical is established between you and him These things I know Ubertino I also have belonged to those groups of men who believe they can produce the truth with white hot iron Well let me tell you the white heat of truth comes from another flame Umberto Eco The Name of the RoseThe Bavarian town of Schongau already has a multitude of problems an ongoing trade war with the Augsburgers a fiery controversy over building a leper house and the ever present fears of plague and witchcraft It is 1659 but just seventy years previously over 60 women were burned at the stake for witchcraft When a young boy is pulled from the river who had been bludgeoned to death and bears the mark of witchcraft on his back the superstitious fears explode into full throated cries for immediate pitchfork and torch vengeance The easy target is the local midwife Martha Stechlin who not only has birthed most of the towns children taking money away from local doctors in the process but she has also has offered cures for coughs rashes and pains with mystifyingly good results Like most witch hunts that I ve read about the women who are accused are usually those women who are under suspicion for reasons to do with petty jealousy revenge or the fact that the women have accumulated knowledge of the medical arts that generally supersede the knowledge of the local trained medical profession They are dangerous women because they havepowerAn unlikely man stands between Martha Stechlin and death by mob the hangman Jakob Kuisl He comes from a long line of ancestors who all provided this specialized skill for the state Besides executions as part of his service to the community he also tortures removes dead animals provides treatment for various ailments and in the case of this story he also with the help of a calming smoking pipe filled with this wonderful intoxicating weed from the New World investigates the circumstances surrounding this accusation of witchcraft As children show up dead bearing the same marks of witchcraft on their back and with numerous sightings of a man with a skeletal hand that could only be the devil Jakob finds himself in a desperate race to find out who is really behind the death of the children before he has to break Martha under torture To gain time he gave Martha a potion that relieves some of the pain from the thumbscrews He keeps assuring her not to not give up and confess to something he knows she hasn t done Unfortunately even though Jakob of the 17th century knows that anyone can be made to confess to anything under the proper torture techniues As recently as the George W Bush administration torture was still in use It was even crowed about to the press regarding the success level of such enhanced interrogation techniues by the Vice President of the United States You give me a water board Dick Cheney and one hour and I ll have him confess to the Sharon Tate murdersLarry King Live May 11 2009 Jesse VenturaJakob has one ally a young doctor named Simon Fronwieser who started spending a lot of time at the Kuisl household when he found that the hangman had books that were not only expensive but in some cases had been banned from circulation He had books by Dioscorides Scultetus Pare Bartisch and Paracelsus Young Simon may have come for the books but he stayed for the exclusive time he could steal with the beautiful Magdalena Kuisl the hangman s daughter One hangup for any future between the two young lovebirds is that offspring of the unclean profession of the hangman must marry in their own family In fact much to her chagrin Magdalena is engaged to marry a cousin a rather unappealing creature with a bovine appearance from a nearby town Is the Devil loose in SchongauThe characters of Jakob and Simon added so much additional enjoyment for me while reading this book They are learned inuisitive men who understand the world is not black and white but a rainbow of shades of gray What an interest concept to have a man such as Jakob who decides that despite his misgivings about the inhumane aspects of torture that he best serves his community by remaining in a profession he loathes It is the only way to insure that justice is properly meted out to those that deserve it and compassion can be dispensed to those he has no chance to save from injustice I liked this book much than I expected Potzsch sprinkles in enough aspects of 17th century Bavarian society to give the reader a feel for the place but he does not weigh the text down with too much historical detail Personally I like my books with as much weight as a writer wants to throw at me but in this case he has successfully created a historical murder mystery that is compulsively readable Mr Potzsch is actually descended from the Kuisl family who were in fact hangmen Now the first reaction one might have to discovering they are descended from such a scourged profession might be to feel a bit disgusted but after the initial nausea passes think of the fascination in researching such a genealogy I m pleasantly surprised and look forward to reading the rest of the entries in this series If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at
