    One thought on “Fünf”

    1. One would think after all the mystery books I have read that I could figure out the who before the big reveal, but apparently not. Which goes to the author's credit especially since this is her first mystery and it is a good one.A puzzle within a puzzle, clues found by geocacheing, which in the states we call letter boxing. It is a lot of fun, two good friends and mine did this for a couple of years and it was a blast. One follows clues posted on a website and you look for the hidden box. In geo [...]

    2. 4.5 starsThis was an excellent read. Detectives Beatrice Kaspery and Florin Wenninger receive a case in which a woman is found dead in a cow pasture with map coordinates tattooed on the heels of her feet. So begins a chase for a serial killer whose victims are found through geocaching - GPS coordinates given to 'hunters' to find a treasure. As the killer continues to give the police their clues, it seems they are always behind in finding him. Excellent writing in this novel and I did not figure [...]

    3. it's pretty far away from what I'm reading these days, but it is what it is; and I seriously needed a reading break. The discovery of a woman's body at the bottom of a rock face turns into a bizarre case involving geocaching, one that keeps the detectives of the Salzburg State Office of Criminal Investigation on the move while trying to decipher strange clues at different gps locations. The dead woman provides the first clue; she has what turns out to be gps coordinates tattooed on the bottoms o [...]

    4. I read this book as part of German Literature month (see here for details: beautyisasleepingcat.wordpress/2016/09/22/announcing-german-literature-month-vi/ ). Ursula Poznanski is an Austrian author and this was translated into English by Jamie Lee Searle.A woman is found murdered and tattooed onto the soles of her feet are a series of numbers and letters. These turn out to be map co-ordinates and what follows is the most twisted geocaching treasure hunt ever!“Five” is a fast paced and exciti [...]

    5. This is a fine translation of a well-plotted mystery set in Salzburg, Austria. Archer does a particularly good job of explaining and tying up the story at the end. The climax will leave readers with more sympathy for the antagonist than might be expected.

    6. “A series of co-ordinates tattooed on the feet of a murder victim lead the police to a box containing body parts - and a note from the killer with a series of cryptic clues to the identity of the next victim. A nail-biting, page-turning thriller that will send shivers down your spine”An Austrian crime thriller set around the activity of geocaching – two things I had not come across before, so I was a little bit out of my comfort zone but in the end I thoroughly enjoyed this read. It was a [...]

    7. „Fünf“ war mein erstes Buch, welches ich von Ursula Poznanski gelesen habe. Auf Grund der vielen positiven und begeisterten Rezensionen, welche ich sowohl zu ihren beiden vorherigen Werken als auch zu „Fünf“ gelesen habe, war ich schon sehr gespannt auf dieses Buch. Doch ich kann mich den überschwänglichen Lobgesängen leider nicht anschließen.Das Thema Geocaching war für mich ganz neu und gleich zu Beginn erhält man von der Autorin eine interessante Einführung in das Thema. Sie [...]

    8. Von der Autorin habe ich bisher nur "Saeculum" gelesen, was mir als spannendes Jugendabenteuer schon sehr gut gefallen hat. Bei "Fünf" hat mich vor allem auch der Thriller Aspekt angesprochen und auch wenn es mich eher an einen Krimi erinnert, war die Spannung zwischendurch doch immer wieder präsent.Der Prolog hat mich schon sehr neugierig gemacht und ich hatte schon einige Ideen im Kopf, um was es gehen könnte, natürlich ohne zu wissen, was tatsächlich dahinter steckt.Die Ermittler sind hi [...]

    9. A good mystery! I thought I had figured it out mid-way through this read, but I was wrong! Some good twists and turns.

    10. Ik kende Ursula Poznanski van haar YA boeken Erebos en Layers. Beide boeken die een raadsel verweven in het verhaal en beide boeken waren ontzettend leuk om te lezen. Tijd dus om eens een volwassen thriller van haar te proberen.Ook hier is Poznanski wederom een kéí om een bijzonder element in een verhaal te verweven. Dit keer is dat geocoaching, een zoekspel waarbij je door middel van coördinaten bij de "schat" aankomt. Leuk detail is dat Poznanski in haar nawoord vertelt dat ze hier zelf ook [...]

    11. I liked it! The writing style was impressive, especially since it was a translation. There were frequent flashbacks that didn't disrupt the storyline or pace. It was easy to follow, yet kept up a decent pulse. I love the topic of geocaching. A unique twist on a mystery/thriller for me. I was fascinated with this hobby that I'd never heard of. It brought a nice element of intrigue. The clues were gruesome, and much of the book reminded me of an advanced and more graphic episode of Criminal Minds. [...]

    12. Ein spannender Thriller mit einer interessanten Idee. :) Das Thema Geocaching ist in diesem Buch ganz gross geschrieben und macht es (jedenfalls für mich) aussergewöhnlich.Allerdings hätten etwas mehr Tempo, ein paar blutige Szenen und etwas tiefgreifendere Charaktere nicht geschadet. Daher gibt es einen Stern weniger.Nichts desto trotz hat mich das Buch sehr gut mit seinen Geheimnissen unterhalten. Man hat zwar immer mal eine Ahnung, aber man kommt trotzdem nicht auf die Lösung. :DFrau Pozn [...]

    13. 3,5 / 5*Máte rádi geocaching?Ano? -> Tuhle knihu musíte přečíst.Nee? -> Tuhle knihu musíte přečíst.

    14. Well written, especially being a translation and good mystery. I did pretty much have the killer figured out but wasn't quite sure about the motive until close to the end.

    15. Ano! Uhodla jsem zapletku! Takze bud to bylo vic nez jasne nebo mi to zacina palit spis to prvni, ale nevadi. Cetlo se to dobre a proste mam ze sveho uspechu takovou radost, ze uz jen kvuli tomu musim dat plny pocet! :)Tema geocachingu deji hodne svedci a je videt ze si ho autorka nastudovala. Tecku dodal jeji dovetek, kde vysvetluje, ze vsechny pouzite souradnice jsou skutecne a az na par uprav odpovidaji realite. Az me to primelo premyslet, jestli se na tuhle zabavu taky nedat. TFTB (thanks fo [...]

    16. I felt that this book was well thought out and certainly had me stumped. Ms. Archer sure writes 'crazy' well. I admit to thinking that the clues just went on a little to long and the middle portion of the book got a little bogged down for me, but it picked right back up again in the last 50-60 pages. I liked the writing style and I hope the author brings Beatrice back and turns this into a series because I'd be interested in following her story a bit longer.

    17. Vijf krijgt van mij **** sterren Ook al is het gebruik van geocaching origineel, het verhaal heeft mij nooit echt vastgegrepen. Het spanningsniveau en psychologisch gehalte vond ik te gering om het boek meer punten te geven.Tevens ben ik teveel fouten tegen gekomen en te weinig (eigenlijk zo goed als geen) mooie zinnen.Waarom dan toch nog een 8.Poznanski kan schrijven en het verhaal zit goed in elkaar, tevens is het onderwerp origineel.

    18. Erebos gibi değil ama başlı başına bir şaheser olmuş. Aslında gayet mantıklı. Çok başarılı bir roman yazdıysan sonraki roman stresi fazla olsa gerek. Farklı tarzda yazmak Evet bu mükemmel bir fikir olmuş. Bence yine başarıyı yakalamış.

    19. Psikopat bir katil. Kurbanlarına işkenceler yaparak onları öldürüyor. Polisle oyun oynuyor ve bundan zevk alıyor. "5" aşamalık bir gerilim. Her katmanda karışan olay örgüsü. Olayı çözmeye çalışan Beatrice Kaspary adında çok zeki ve güzel bir dedektif. Dudak uçuklatacak bir son.Ursula Poznanski, yine çok ilginç bir konuyu bizlerle paylaşıyor. Erebos ve Saeculum'u okuduktan sonra bu kitabı da okuma kararı aldım. Kitabı okumaya başladım ve ilk sayfalarda açıkças [...]

    20. Book Review originally published here: iheartreading/reviews/Five is an interesting crime novel combining geocaching with a mystery and murder. For those who don’t know geocaching, you enter GPS coordinates into your cell phone, and then go searching for “treasure” hidden by others. The item could’ve been there for years. Usually it’s something small, but in the case of “Five”, things are a little more gruesome. Think along the line of body parts. Yep, that gruesome.The writing is [...]

    21. What a ride!I really liked this book - fast paced from the word go!And it got me immediately intrigued by geocaching - I had never heard of this activity beforehand but I did actually end up signing up to the website and look forward to taking part! (it sounds like a worthwhile activity whilst on holiday to discover your surroundings) hopefully our findings will not be as gruesome as the ones Beatrice Kaspary and her partner Florin encounter in this storyAll of the characters were well developed [...]

    22. I'm surprised I've never read a murder mystery about geocaching before. What a great combination. Don't worry if you don't know anything about geocaching - Archer provides enough of a primer to make it accessible and intriguing (what did we do before we could download a GPS app on our phone?). She does a great job of teasing the story out - doling out tidbits of backstory. Bea and Florin make for as interesting a police duo as I've read in some time. Their personal lives flit about the edges of [...]

    23. Austria's entry into the serial killer market.Recent divorcee Beatrice Kaspary is dealing with two children upset by her sticky divorce and her angry, harassing ex-husband. She's also a detective and there is a new case; a woman is found dead with a series of numbers crudely tattooed onto her feet. The numbers are map coordinates, part of a geocache game. At the end of the geocache quest the police find a container with a shrink wrapped human hand.More coordinates and clues follow due to the kil [...]

    24. Bisher kannte ich nur die Jugendromane "Erebos" und den ersten Teil der Trilogie "Die Verratenen" und leider konnte mich die Autorin mit den beiden Bücher nicht überzeugen. Mit ihrer Krimi-Reihe wollte ich allerdings noch eine Chance geben und bin sehr froh, dass ich dies getan habe.Den Fall fand ich sehr interessant, insbesondere in Verbindung mit dem Geocaching, was auch in die Ermittlung eingeflossen bin. Das war für mich völlig neu und habe ich so noch in keiner Art gelesen. Das gibt sch [...]

    25. 'Five' offers a new twist to the typical serial killer thrillers. GPS coordinates are found tattooed on the soles of a victims' feet. The coordinates send police on a "treasure hunt" of sorts where the killer mixes murder with geocaching, an activity where geocachers hunt for hidden objects based on GPS coordinates and clues from other geocachers. An enjoyable read (if you like dark murder mysteries) with an intriguing lead character, D.I. Beatrice Kaspary. As a geocacher myself, it was fun to r [...]

    26. Hodnocení: 3,5/5.Pět je čtivý a svižný thriller okořeněný originálním námětem geocachingu. Škoda jen, že se autorka víc nevěnovala popisům prostředí, vyšetřovacích postupů a hlubší charakteristice vedlejších postav. Pět přesto funguje jako velmi zdařilý úvod do nové série thrillerů s Beatrice Kasparyovou a čtenářům nezbývá nic jiného, než se těšit na další díl.Celou recenzi si můžete přečíst zde:suzannesworldofbooks/cl

    27. I received this book in exchange for an honest review! This book grabbed my attention from the beginning and caused me a couple of sleepless nights because I didn't want to put it down. The storyline was full of twists and turns and the characters were reminiscent of people you may have met in life. I had heard of geocaching before but never knew what it was so I like how the author explained what it was through the characters having to research it. I am hoping that this debut novel ends up beco [...]
