Madame Mephisto : A Novel Paperback / softback


What would you talk about if you were stuck in a room with a drug dealer for five days? Magda, a Polish immigrant, grows cannabis in underground containers in eastern Poland and ships it to the UK.

But her plans change when she has to attend a funeral of a family member and she only has five days to convince her mysterious listener to help her expand her empire.

Magda begins to tell the unexpected story of her life - the cover jobs in London, the strained relationship with her family who know nothing about who Magda really is, and her development as a cannabis dealer.

Can you trust somebody who is two people, and how do you know when to believe a professional liar? ...Menacing, fast-paced, with a unique and intense voice, A.M.

Bakalar's first novel reveals unexpected truths about the lies we tell and the people we are.
