Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
A magistrate in a country village protests the army's treatment of members of the barbarian tribes taken prisoner during a civil war and finds himself arrested as a traitor.

Review:
"The novel moves between claustrophobic enclosures and arid, exquisitely rendered open spaces that reveal treacherous trap-doors....The book keeps us on edge, uneasy."

Walter Clemons, Newsweek, 05/31/82

Review:
"The book makes for compelling reading, largely due to the successful use of the present tense throughout and the vivid presentation of unfolding events."

World Literature Today, Autumn 1981
