In this sweeping story, a novelist travels to a small town near the coast to write a murder mystery and instead, through a series of twists and turns, becomes a murderer himself. Over the course of one night, he reveals what drove him to murder, including a love affair, a dangerous friendship with the town’s mayor, and an unwitting involvement in the power struggle among the townsfolk who believe that treasure is buried in the nearby hills. As with all of Altan’s work, the story is rife with fear, courage, evil, virtue, loyalty, betrayal, pleasure, sins, sex, dreams and solitude, all drawing us back to the power of the written word and the complexity of human relationships.
