Publisher's Summary

Two cousins, devastated by a childhood prank, reunite 20 years later to renovate a castle in Eastern Europe. The fortress has a bloody history that stretches back hundreds of years. Amid extreme paranoia and eerie silence, the men reenact the signal event of their youth, with even more catastrophic results. And as the full horror of their predicament unfolds, a third party - a prisoner, jailed for an unnamed crime - recounts an unforgettable story that brings the crimes of the past and present into stunning alignment.

Wish I could read it for the first time again

This novel is incredibly well written. Ms Egan has a wonderful way of describing a situation and the character's state of mind succinctly and with crystal clarity. This was one novel that I was happy to finish to see what happens, but was sad too because now it's over.

Such a unique author

At first I wasn't quite sure what I think of this book, but I wasn't about to put it down. Egan unfolds the story within a story in an intriguing, subtly mind blowing way and leaves you wondering about all the forms of confinement that we inflict on others and ourselves. Until I was deeply into the book, I wasn't empathizing with the narrator, but she got me in the end, and that was a surprise.
