Publisher's Summary

Lucien (Lucy) Minor is the resident odd duck in the bucolic hamlet of Bury. Friendless and loveless, he is a compulsive liar and a weakling. When Lucy accepts employment assisting the majordomo of the remote, foreboding castle of the Baron Von Aux, he meets thieves, madmen, aristocrats, and a puppy.
Thus begins a tale of polite theft, bitter heartbreak, domestic mystery and cold-blooded murder....

A very enjoyable tale

Great, funny, creepy, very well narrated. And worth it for the dinner party scene alone :)

A rich and fun experience incredibly well read.

At once deWitt's voice echoes the works of Dahl in its rich and varied portrayal of one boy's journey to find and keep a hold of love. A cast of characters emerge from an idyllic landscape full of bloodlust and sex. Just like are Sisters Brothers, the experience is unique, the story bold and understated. Great to listen to on walks.
