Description

Shortlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize 2013
________________________
'Vyleta writes with the sharp, brutal clarity of cinematic freeze frames... Noir meets Gothic - a thrilling tale of war crimes, family secrets, murder and blackmail' Independent

'The atmosphere of postwar Europe, still seething with animosity, is wonderfully evoked and the tangled plot is thrilling' The Times
________________________
The Second World War is over - and yet it lives on. As the initial phase of denazification draws to a close, people across Vienna begin to rebuild their lives amidst the rubble. Anna Beer returns to the city she fled years earlier upon discovering her husband's infidelity. She has come back to find him and, perhaps, to forgive him.

Travelling on the same train is eighteen-year-old Robert Seidel, a schoolboy summoned home to his stepfather's sickbed and the secrets of his family's past. As Anna and Robert navigate an unrecognizable city, beneath the bombed-out ruins a ghost of a man, wrapped in a red scarf, battles demons from his past and hides from a future that is deeply uncertain for all.
