The year is 1662. Alpine village hangman Jakob Kuisl receives a letter from his sister calling him to the imperial city of Regensburg, where a gruesome sight awaits him: her throat has been slit. Arrested and framed for the murder, Kuisl faces firsthand the torture he's administered himself for years.

Jakob's daughter, Magdalena, and a young medicus named Simon hasten to his aid. With the help of an underground network of beggars, a beer-brewing monk, and an Italian playboy, they discover that behind the false accusation is a plan that will endanger the entire German Empire.

Chock-full of historical detail, The Beggar King brings to vibrant life another tale of an unlikely hangman and his tough-as-nails daughter, confirming P tzsch's mettle as a writer to watch.

I loved the 1st book in the series. 2nd book was ok. This one was back to great again! The hangman, his daughter, & the town doctor end up on an unexpected trip to a neighboring town due to an unexpected family crisis. While there, they find themselves investigating a much larger, city-wide crisis. Love the diversity of characters, love the recurring characters, love the twisting story.
