The Successor, Paperback Book


The Designated Successor was found dead in his bedroom at dawn on December 14.Did he kill himself or was he murdered?

This question slices through Ismail Kadare's masterful psychological thriller.

As the state insists that the future leader died by his own hand, the rest of the world begins to have doubts.

As the tension builds and rumours escalate, Kadare draws us into a nightmarish world controlled by rules no one understands, blending dream and reality to produce a mystery and a thriller that seduces and surprises up to the last page.
