The Exiled

1 Mins read

The crunch of ice under boot, and the hard, grey streets of Finland are left behind in the latest Anna Fekete story by Kati Hiekkapelto. The author takes her heroine back to the place of her birth, a Hungarian town but in contemporary Serbia. Anna just wants to unwind, drink wine, and enjoy the summer with friends and family. But after her purse is snatched, and the culprit is found dead, her detective instincts lead her into an investigation that she won’t let lie. Why was the Romany man killed, why do the police seem to be covering it up, and what lurks in the shadows that surround Anna’s own father’s murder almost 30 years ago? A touching, textured and troubling read – very atmospheric – and you can find out more in our review.
