The Iscariot Field

£10.99

Product description

Paperback in VGC, spine unbroken. In English.

The Iscariot Field describes how a mausoleum dating from the Phoenician era is being desecrated in the most disgusting manner. This leads to extremely strange consequences that attract the attention of the European Union’s highest authorities in Brussels. Meanwhile, preparations are under way for the production of a television programme on site at the field named Iscariot which is located close to the hidden mausoleum. It all leads to a tragic and very bloody climax.

However The Iscariot Field is written as a black comedy. “It’s an addictive page turner that had me laughing out loud,” wrote a leading reviewer. Vampires, the problems caused by obesity, farcical sex encounters between the leading characters, drug trafficking, life at the university, corruption – along with other themes – all form part of the plot which presents a panorama of contemporary Maltese society. A literary critic praised The Iscariot Field for the manner by which all the strands of the story come together in “an insanely cruel climax”.
