The Scary Crow at the Lake

There is something strange going on here, in Deutenhausen, the eerie village in Bavaria. The crows from the reservoir suddenly attack Ida’s grandma! Hendrik and his little brother, Eddie, run to help Ida, but Eddie is also a victim of the crows. It’s as if a terrible curse were on the green-blue shimmering lake that flooded what used to be three villages. Does that man who is always muttering about the gods have anything to do with this? Is it nature’s revenge? A wonderfully eerie novel about superstition, irrationality and dark family secrets.
