T. C. Boyle
when the Killing’S done
Principally set on the wild and sparsely inhabited Channel Islands
off the coast of Santa Barbara, Boyle’s powerful novel combines
pulse-pounding adventure with a socially conscious, richly humane tale regarding the dominion we attempt to exert, for better
or worse, over the natural world.

The heroine of this enigmatic, razor-sharp, and thoroughly contemporary novel is seventeen-year-old Sacha Naimann, born in
Moscow. Sacha lives in Berlin now with her two younger siblings
and, until recently, her mother. She is precocious, independent,
skeptical and, since her stepfather murdered her mother several
months ago, an orphan. “Surprising, poetic, extremely well-craft-ed...recalls the narrative art of Zadie Smith.”—Kölner Stradtrevue.
