Retired policeman Edvard Holoubek tells Lieutenant Josef Slonský that he knows there was a miscarriage of justice thirty years before, and he’d like to put it right before he dies.
When Slonský begins to investigate, there are more killings, convincing him that someone does not want the matter reopened. Slonský finds himself dragged into the coldest of cold cases that will touch those nearest to him.
Set in modern day Prague with a Lieutenant who still holds old school views, The Book of Slaughter and Forgetting will appeal to anyone who enjoys a classic mystery story with undertones of black comedy.
Graham Brack was born in Sunderland. Having produced a lot of highly respected technical writing, The Outrageous Behaviour of the Left Handed Dwarves is his first work of fiction. Another, The Book of Slaughter and Forgetting– a work which cheekily references that of Czech-born writer Milan Kundera – also features the long-suffering Slonský.
