This novel won the Hercule Poirot Prize but it has nothing to do with the mysteries of Mrs Agatha Christie.
Dark, gruesome, depressing, twisted , with unpleasant characters , this is not for everyone's taste. However it is extremely well written with a solid historical and literary background.
Not recommended for sensitive readers, violent sexual scenes and horrific murders...
