The Girl Who Wasn't There, Paperback
1 out of 5 (1 rating)


Sebastian von Eschburg, scion of a wealthy, self-destructive family, survived his disastrous childhood to become a celebrated if controversial artist.

He casts a provocative shadow over the Berlin scene; his disturbing photographs and installations show that truth and reality are two distinct things. When Sebastian is accused of murdering a young woman and the police investigation takes a sinister turn, seasoned lawyer Konrad Biegler agrees to represent him - and hopes to help himself in the process.

But Biegler soon learns that nothing about the case, or the suspect, is what it appears.

The new thriller from the acclaimed author of The Collini Case, THE GIRL WHO WASN'T THERE is dark, ingenious and irresistibly gripping.

Review by

I don't have much to say about this boom. I read von Schirach's previous novel, 'The Collini Case' which started well but subsided into an all too predictable denouement. I found that this one didn't even start very well.This book was emotionally stark and stylistically bereft, and I am confident that this will be the last of his books I dally with.
