Product description

Review

"The narrative is brilliantly complex and beguiling, and the climax devastating" (Independent)

"Clever, highly readable… Neither predictable nor surprising, the dénouement, when it finally happens, is shocking, moving and horribly convincing" (Literary Review)

"A classic of its kind, brewing up enormous pathos undiluted by sentimentality" (Daily Telegraph)

"A fierce, elliptical novel that's both a gripping philosophical thriller and a highly moving meditation on the emotion consequences of war" (New York Times)

"Only the best historical fiction can make the journey into a distant time and return with a believable sense of how things really were. That Japrisot's book has done so is a mark of his great talent and experience as a writer" (Washington Post)

Book Description

'Diabolically clever... The reader is alternately impressed, beguiled, frightened, bewildered... A considerable achievement' Anita Brookner
