Summary:
"The seventh installment of Oliver Potzsch's bestselling Hangman's Daughter series"--

1672. Hangman Jakob Kuisl and his family travel to Munich for a meeting of the prestigious-- for hangmen, at least-- Council of Twelve, the leaders of the empire's hangmen's guild. When young women begin turning up dead, the authorities assume they are a rash of suicides. But Kusil notices that each woman possesses a matching amulet, and suspects someone is murdering these women. With no suspects, the superstitious townsfolk of Munich blame the hangmen's guild, certain that they have called the devil upon the city. If Kuisl fails to solve the mystery of who is murdering these girls, it will affect all the hangmen in Germany.
