The Devil and Miss Prym: A Novel of Temptation
A stranger arrives at the remote village of Viscos, carrying with him a backpack containing a notebook and eleven gold bars.

In welcoming the mysterious foreigner, the whole village becomes an accomplice to his sophisticated plot, which will forever mark their lives.
