About this title:

Synopsis: [MP3-CD audiobook format in Vinyl case.]

[Read by Kate Reading]

Graham Greene meets Dostoevsky in a thrilling and atmospheric story of guilt and restitution set in postwar Vienna. In The Crooked Maid, Dan Vyleta returns to the shadows of war-darkened Vienna, proving himself once again ''a magical storyteller, master of the macabre''(David Park).

Vienna, 1948. The war is over, and as the initial phase of de-Nazification winds down, the citizens of Vienna struggle to rebuild their lives amid the rubble. Anna Beer returns to the city she fled nine years earlier after discovering her husband's infidelity. She has come back to find him and, perhaps, to forgive him. Traveling on the same train from Switzerland is eighteen-year-old Robert Seidel, a schoolboy summoned home to his stepfather's sickbed and the secrets of his family's past.

As Anna and Robert navigate an unrecognizable city, they cross paths with a war-widowed American journalist, a hunchbacked young servant girl, and a former POW whose primary purpose is to survive by any means -- and to forget. Meanwhile, in the shells of burned-out houses and beneath the bombed-out ruins, a ghost of a man, his head wrapped in a red scarf, battles demons from his past and hides from a future deeply uncertain for all.

About the Author: DAN VYLETA is the son of Czech refugees who emigrated to Germany in the late 1960s. He holds a PhD in history from the University of Cambridge. His novels include Pavel & I and The Quiet Twin. Vyleta is a Canadian citizen and lives in Wisconsin.
