(From the publisher):
A young man is found brutally murdered, his eyes gouged out and a strange symbol carved on his body. A student of Icelandic history in Reykjavik, he came from a wealthy German family who do not share the police's belief that his drug dealer murdered him. Thora is hired by his mother to find the truth, with the help - and hindrance - of boorish ex-policeman Matthew Reich.
Their investigation into the boy's death takes them to the northern coast, where in the Dark Ages men, not women, were burned as witches. As they journey deep into a grisly world of torture and witchcraft both past and present, they draw ever closer to a killer ruled by a dark and deadly obsession...
