NATIONAL BESTSELLER An international sensation published in twenty-seven languages,The Gargoyle is the mesmerizing story of one man's descent into a personal hell and his quest for salvation. On a dark road in the middle of the night, a car plunges into a ravine. The driver survives the crash, but he is confined to the burn ward suffering horrible injuries. There, he does nothing more than plot the suicide he will commit when released. Everything changes when Marianne Engel, a possibly schizophrenic sculptress of grotesques, enters his life. She insists they were lovers in medieval Germany, when he was a mercenary and she was a scribe in the monastery of Engelthal. As she spins the story of their past lives together, the man's disbelief falters; soon, even the impossible can no longer be dismissed.
