The plot is very loosely based on the authors’s own dysfunctional family history: when Salas was 17, after his father died, his mother was murdered by a hitman hired by his father’s first wife and a stepbrother he knew nothing about. The hitman was supposed to kill him too, but luckily the boy happened to be out at the time. In the novel, the boy seeks revenge by seducing the hitman. Dark and very gripping.
