Mark Slouka's novel begins with a child of Czech immigrants, now living in New York, who has been brought up on the folklore of his parents' homeland. As an adult he becomes aware that he has no knowledge of his parents during the Nazi occupation of Prague. He makes a journey back to Czechoslovakia, and it is only then that he discovers their part in the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the notorious 'butcher of Prague', and begins to understand his mother Ivana's unhappiness. Intertwined with this gripping history is a passionate love story, the tragic consequences of which transcend both decades and continents.
