Asked to appraise a mysterious manuscript, Bruno is disturbed to find that the author is none other than his rival. Disconcertingly, the book is good—very good. But there is hope for the older man: the unwelcome masterpiece is dangerously political. Krug decides that if his affair with Theresa is to prove more than a fling, he must employ a small deception. But in the Workers’ and Peasants’ State, knowing the deceiver from the deceived, the betrayer from the betrayed, isn’t just difficult: it can be a matter of life and death.
This book has been going around my social media sites for a couple of weeks as it has been newly released by W.W. Norton Company. When I saw the cover I was intrigued already. It is so simple but looks if something terrible can happen any moment. Next thing that pulled me in was a book about books and it has an exciting synopsis. I really hope I will be able to get my hands on a copy soon.
