This is a new edition of Michael Golvach's first novel, and it is just as skillfully written as his newer books. It has the elements that readers have come to expect from him -- despicable characters and sympathetic characters, crime and punishment. Underneath the runaway ambition, cruelty, and brutality that exist at nearly every turn in this novel, there is a love story which gives the reader hope that a better world can be found.
I would recommend this book not only to lovers of crime/murder mysteries, but also to anyone who enjoys fiction and a good story.
If you're looking for a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat, look no further. I wanted so badly to get to the end, I stayed up all night reading it. I would recommend this book to everybody!
