Review by Lana McLean
Embark on a literary journey like no other in Jennifer Croft’s latest masterpiece, where eight translators converge in a mystical Polish forest to decode the magnum opus of the revered author Irena Rey.
The translators, representing eight diverse countries but united by their admiration for Rey, find themselves at her secluded forest dwelling. Their mission: to unravel the secrets of her enigmatic masterpiece. However, the plot takes an unexpected turn when Irena Rey mysteriously vanishes without a trace, leaving the translators to navigate the primeval wilderness while grappling with the complexities of her work.
Croft masterfully weaves a tale of deception, rivalry, and desire as the translators confront their differences and grow increasingly paranoid during their self-appointed mission to find the whereabouts of the missing author. As the translators race against time, the fate of Irena Rey and the sanctity of her masterpiece hang in the balance.
Croft’s storytelling is both intellectually stimulating and truly enthralling, offering a plot that is genuinely distinctive and captivating. This narrative stands apart from any book I’ve encountered, delivering a reading experience that is refreshingly unparalleled.
