Shusaku Endo's most disquieting novel and a masterful study of individual and collective moral disintegration.
Set in a Japanese hospital during the last days of the Second World War, the story centres on the medical staff who offer to assist in a series of vivisections, experimental operations on live American prisoners of war.
