Her latest novel Kill Me Again is a dark tale of an abandoned wife who bears a striking resemblance to a woman found murdered. Melanie Raabe grew up in the former East Germany before moving to West Germany with her family. Her first novel, The Trap, is a gripping psychological thriller about one woman's plan for revenge against her sister's killer.
