Last Rituals: A Novel of Suspenseby Yrsa Sigurdardottir
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
At a university in Reykjavik, the body of a young German student is discovered, his eyes cut out and strange symbols carved into his chest. Police waste no time in making an arrest, but the victim's family isn't convinced that the right man is in custody. They ask Thora Gudmundsdottir, an attorney and single mother of two, to investigate.
It isn't long before Thora and her associate, Matthew Reich, uncover the deceased student's obsession with Iceland's grisly history of torture, execution, and witch hunts. But there are very contemporary horrors hidden in the long, cold shadow of dark traditions. And for two suddenly endangered investigators, nothing is quite what it seems... and no one can be trusted.
Set in modern-day Iceland — and already an international sensation — Last Rituals introduces one of the most compelling and exceptional new characters to appear in years, attorney Thora Guomundsdottir, in a tale of medieval witchcraft and modern murder.
