Publisher's Summary

Bestselling Polish crime by award-winning author Zygmunt Miloszewski.
All eyes are on famous prosecutor Teodor Szacki when he investigates a skeleton discovered at a construction site in the idyllic Polish city of Olsztyn. Old bones come as no shock to anyone in this part of Poland, but it turns out these remains are fresh, the flesh chemically removed.
Szacki questions the dead man's wife, only to be left with a suspicion she's hiding something. Then another victim surfaces - a violent husband, alive but maimed - giving rise to a theory: someone's targeting domestic abusers. And as new clues bring the murderer closer to those Szacki holds dear, he begins to understand the terrible rage that drives people to murder.
From acclaimed Polish crime writer Zygmunt Miloszewski comes a gritty, atmospheric pause resister that poses the question, what drives a sane man to kill?

Best Crime Thriller This Year!

Refreshingly unique, highly imaginative and highly satisfying to the very end!
I recommend this author, this novel and this narrator to be the best in the foreign category of psychological crime thrillers for this year. The translation gave the appearance of this being an American book. Bravo!

Life in Poland and the Ukraine is different.

This book was translated into English. Reading writers from other countries has allowed me view their culture, country and stories threw their eyes. This story is about crime and punishment in the Ukraine. I learned alot and the story kept me engaged from beginning to end.
