Karolina, or The Torn Curtain

by Maryla Szymiczkowa - £9.99  Oneworld Publications (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781786079299 | ISBN 10: 1786079291

A thrilling sequel to the critically-acclaimed Mrs Mohr Goes Missing.
 
Easter, 1895. The biggest event in the Catholic calendar is a disaster in Zofia Turbotynska's household. Her maid Karolina has handed in her notice and worse, gone missing. When Karolina's body is discovered, violated and stabbed, Zofia knows she has to investigate.
 
Following a trail that leads her from the poorest districts of Galicia to the highest echelons of society, Zofia uncovers a web of gang crimes, sex-trafficking and corruption that will force her to question everything she knows.
 
Set against the backdrop of the women's cause, Karolina, or the Torn Curtain refuses to turn a blind eye to the injustices and inequalities of its era - and ours.
