About the book
That is the question Viktor asks himself when he is released from prison after eleven years. He barely recognizes the world that once condemned him for the death of his child. In search of who he is, he meets The Vulture, an old man from the criminal underworld.
Renée, a woman of twenty-nine, addresses her thoughts to her young son. When she was four she survived a cerebral infarction and at nine she discovered her
magical powers. Now, in 2035, she is an immensely wealthy artist. Her work changes countless human lives, whereas her life is lonely and threatened. In 1985 Renée’s grandfather, a police inspector, witnesses the last and bloodiest terror attack by The Gang. From the car park in front of the supermarket he sees something no one else notices. Thirty years later he has one last chance to prove he was right. Sentence by sentence, as only Peter Terrin can, the author spins a web around the reader.
