earned her the enviable position of events manager at Loyn, an exclusive leather accessories company in Zurich But when Werner Schulmann is appointed as her new supervisor, Josefa s professional ambitions are dealt a serious blow After all, it was Schulmann s sexual harassment that nearly derailed her The Zurich Kindle - career years earlierUnable to stomach the thought of working for such a man, Josefa resigns, abandoning Loyn for another local firm But when Schulmann is murdered and Loyn s CEO commits suicide, Josefa begins to suspect that something other than sexual impropriety is plaguing her former company She sets out to uncover the truth and soon realizes that the two deaths are just the tip of the iceberg As she digs deeper, Josefa finds herself caught in a complex and dangerous web of blackmail, corporate espionage, and murder And if she s not careful, she will be the next one to take the fallThis dramatic tale of corporate intrigue doubles as an intricately plotted thriller about the darkest side of office politics and the people who will do anything to come out on top. yeah this was not stellar by any stretch it oscillated between ok we are getting somewhere this is good, but then immediately felt like the story completed switched translators vantage point not good it has been a while since i have read a book and genuinely felt i was lost I feel like my kindle must have lost the ending because it was just so unfinished one last commentjust like the movie the descent do not go into caves if you are female Maybe it was the translation, but for a suspense novel, I didn t feel much suspense at all At least I didn t have to pay anything for the copy I read. gefiel mir sehr gut, spannend auch ohne Blut und Gewaltszenen Schluss fand ich ein wenig einfallslos The heroine of this book is Josefa Rehmer, who works for an up market Swiss company as an events organiser The company concerned is Loyn, which specialises in items which no one needs but some of us want such as handbags most people could only buy with a mortgage Josefa is conscientious and excellent at her job, aided by a trusted colleague, Claire Fendi.In the recent past a

company as an events organiser The company concerned is Loyn, which specialises in items which no one needs but some of us want such as handbags most people could only buy with a mortgage Josefa is conscientious and excellent at her job, aided by a trusted colleague, Claire Fendi.In the recent past a company called Swixan has collapsed, leaving employees, pensioners and shareholders in dire straits though, as often happens, the directors have salted away large sums of money where no one but they can get hold of it This matters for two reasons One is that some of these ex directors begin to take an interest in Loyn, and the other is revenge The body count of Swixan directors begins to mount Despite this, the reader does not have to wade through blood and gore since the deaths occur off stage.At the same time, a sexual predator named Werner Schulman, whom Josefa has previous bad experience of, is appointed to a post immediately above her in the company This rankles She has been doing the work with great success which he is now appointed to do The result is that she leaves Loyn, which greatly upsets her assistant, Claire.The complex plot has several layers to it, but is very well done The personal life of Josefa is fully realised and, though some of it has no direct bearing on it the plot, it makes the events as they unfold muchreal for the reader than a narrowly plot driven book would do And the same goes for her assistant, about whom Josefa receives letter from a concerned aunt towards the end of the book The letter is quite long, explanatory, and given in full, but it works Calonega takes an expansive approach to her writing rather than keeping everything taut for added narrative impulse, and it works very well One strength of the book is the rendering of corporate life, together with the intrigue and back stabbing which sometimes accompanies it We attend some of the events Josefa has organised, which gives us a feeling for what it might be like There is also the occasional meeting, fraught beneath the polite veneer.Joesfa is an intelligent woman who gradually pieces together some of the things which are happening, but by no means all She makes several mistakes, one of which is potentially fatal And the conclusion of the book leaves us with two loose ends, as can happen in life One character, Pius Tschor, has disappeared and no one is sure what has happened to him And another, who had seemed to be relatively minor, is keeping Josefa under observation The reader is let in on this but Josefa and her new found friend , the detective Sebastian Sauter are not This might have provided a starting point for a sequel, but as far as I can see the author s next title stars a new character altogether.I enjoyed this book a lot and look forward to readingof her work The book was written in German and the translation reads well, though I had always thought that the verb to dive was a regular verb and the past tense was dived In this book it is dove Maybe that is common in US English In the entire 400 pages only one other thing struck me as odd the pronounced shape of his head signalled decisiveness Surely phrenology was discredited as long ago as 1840 A pretty good mystery novel Bernadette Calonego is a native of Switzerland raised in the German speaking part of the country She obtained a teaching diploma from the

Switzerland raised in the German speaking part of the country She obtained a teaching diploma from the University of Fribourg in Switzerland majoring in German, French and English literature She worked for a time as a reporter editor for Reuters news service in Zurich assigned to the financial desk, and it was from this experience that inspired her to write The Zurich Conspiracy.Calonego s mystery murder novel is born of a very complex plot, taking its intrigue from the nefarious behind the scenes maneuverings of the rich and powerful of a high image corporate machine Everyone is scratching and clawing to get to the top, and some don t care what it takes to get there Calonego draws upon a considerable number of characters in her work and that throws certain confusion into the soup that successfully keeps the reader pondering the connections The heroine of the story, Josefa Rehmer, steadfastly progresses the reader through the anonymous narrated mystery step by step until the final conclusion.This was a pretty engaging murder mystery conspiracy type theme, well written, and as mentioned, rather complex in its character devices It was a bit anti climatic at the conclusion and somewhat puzzling too Because of the intricate weaving that Calonego does with her characters, it takes a bitthan casual attention to understand the full interplay I felt like I needed to read it again to clear up some of my lost connections I will have to admit that I never did fully figure out the end, there seemed to be some motivation missing to explain it One other trouble I had was visualizing Frau Rehmer I know this was a translation, but the German to English translation left me somewhat perplexed I just couldn t come to grips with a female named Josefa it just didn t conjure up an image of someone feminine I kept thinking of Ruth Buzzi s character in the old Rowan Martin Laugh In TV series All in all this was a good mystery murder novel steeped with intrigue, and I would recommend you add it to your reading list I would rate it pleasurable, not particularly memorable but pretty good just the same The Zurich Conspiracy is an overly ambitious mystery thriller with murders galore but only a thin plot to tie them together It s very hard for the reader to tell the dead apart without a program, because they are all ambitious Swiss businessmen, and most of them don t die real time Instead, their deaths are recapped via newspaper articles and other such devices One guy comes back from the dead but quickly returns there his cameo appearance revealing the

devices One guy comes back from the dead but quickly returns there his cameo appearance revealing the ruthlessness of one of the sweeter killers The ending drags with the business of tying up loose plot lines, including a protracted, pointless explanation of the sad childhood of one of the murderers The final twist comes at the very end, leaving what the writer must believe is a cliff hanger that will lead into a sequel it fell flat for this reader and for many others whose reviews I ve read.With all that said I still liked this book With the exception of the dead businessmen, I thought the characters were reasonably well developed and real in the sense that they had flaws and strengths After a weak and confusing start, the storyline moved along at a good clip until it started

this book was written in german, I got the english translation through a kindle daily deal , but I thought it was terribly written There were so many loose ends and the ending itself felt as if the writer just didn t know how she could finish the book I hated the main character The conversations felt staged nobody that I know talks like that and the story itself was too construed. The author overstepped her bounds in trying to create a layered plot instead there are far too many sinister conspiracies and implausible coincidences And in several spots the translator couldn t decide if he would use the literal German translation or use equivalent English idioms I thought about stopping after 100 pages, and after finishing it, I wish I had.
