“In Sofia, Bulgaria, a young American woman mourning the loss of a beloved brother has a chance encounter with an elderly couple. She helps them into a cab; a satchel is left behind. When Alexandra opens the bag, what she finds sets her on a path that will take her into Sofia’s charged political past. Kostova plunges the reader into a web of political oppression, horror, and personal danger. As in The Historian, Kostova weaves a page-turner that takes the reader through historic places and darker days while introducing characters that are essential to good storytelling.”

Description


A young American woman, Alexandra Boyd, has traveled to Sofia, Bulgaria, hoping that life abroad will salve the wounds left by the loss of her beloved brother. Soon after arriving in this elegant East European city, however, she helps an elderly couple into a taxi and realizes too late that she has accidentally kept one of their bags. Inside she finds an ornately carved wooden box engraved with a name: Stoyan Lazarov. Raising the hinged lid, she discovers that she is holding an urn filled with human ashes.
