Sir Tristan Hiregaard of Nova Vaasa appears outwardly to be a kind nobleman who would never harm anyone. But his sinister alter-ego, the evil crime lord Malken, finds no act too base when it comes to extending his vast criminal empire.
from start to finish. thrilling. like car crash I just couldn't stop listening till the very end.
I found the book to be an entertaining murder mystery and I liked the depth of the characters. At the end, I found the open-ended finale a bit underwhelming and I didn't feel there was a good explanation regarding the existence of Malcan. However, perhaps that is what one should expect from a Ravenloft novel.
