Summary (From the publisher):

Tolstoy's final novella, The Forged Coupon is an ingenious study of the destructive powers of evil set against a brilliant depiction of Russian life.

Inescapably in thrall to the power his crimes bring him, Stepan goes further and further down the path of evil, relentlessly seeking new opportunities to murder and maim. When, however, one of his victims refuses to surrender to him, instead dying with pity on her lips, he finds himself haunted by her image. Suddenly, he is faced with the choice of continuing a life of crime, or facing up to his actions and their certain consequences.
