Melmoth

Melmoth

by Sarah Perry

Lean, mean, and packed full of psychological dread. In true Gothic fashion, Perry pens a symphony of prose and perturbation as we follow Helen Franklin, an Englishwoman working in Prague under self-imposed exile. When Karel, a colleague of Helen's, goes missing after researching the folk legend of Melmoth the Witness, she finds herself despairing over his abandoned documents to discover the truth behind this forsaken figure. Melmoth, looming in every shadow, now beckons for Helen.
