About the Author
Dirk Trost was born in 1957 in Duisburg, Germany. From the time he was a young boy, he spent many a summer on the North Sea coast reading adventure stories and fantasizing about writing his own. Fifty years later, he’s made his childhood dream come true with the East Frisian crime novel A Murderous Storm.

The story had some entertaining moments, though how some of these characters survived is beyond me. I think the author might have made the cops TOO stupid, unless of course they’re actually that corrupt. The main character’s daughter shows up, which will be good for some plot points later, but basically shows just how stubbornly stupid one person can be, though the acorn was too lazy to roll too far away from the tree, considering just when you think it’s all over the protagonist gets into trouble again. My favorite character was actually the dog; I think it was the smartest living thing in the story.
The best part of this novel was the settings; though I’ve been all over Germany, even relatively close to where this takes place, the starkness of the landscape described here is not something my camera has photographed. It’s different on the resort island, which is one of those places like Mackinac where motorized vehicles aren’t allowed. But most of all, the portrayal of the storm, and finding the victim in the middle of it, was the highlight.
3.5 pushed to 4/5
When former attorney Jan De Fries heads out fishing in the north sea, he expects to return home with nothing but a fresh catch.
Wow. Absolutely fantastic read.
I loved the story and the characters.
Wow. Action from the start.
And wow didn't expect that.
It wasn't who I thought it was.
I loved the ending too.
Definitely worth more than 5 *.
