“A fast-paced, gripping story set in a world of gruesome violence and perversity, where 'why?' is not a question and murder happens on a whim: but where a very faint ray of grace and hope lights up the landscape of salt and blood and ice.  A tour de force of narrative tension and a masterful reconstruction of a lost world that seems to exist at the limits of the human imagination.”—Hilary Mantel
