This novel takes place in a remote village in south-west Poland where Janina, an eccentric woman in her 60s, describes the
events surrounding the disappearance of her two dogs. When members of a local hunting club are subsequently found murdered,
she becomes involved in the investigation. By no means a conventional crime story, this novel offers some thought-provoking
ideas on our perceptions of madness, social injustice against people who are marginalised, animal rights, the hypocrisy of
traditional religion, and belief in predestination.
