In this suspenseful cycle of interconnected stories, a cast of desperate characters find themselves at the margin of death, and step across - right into one another's story. An aspiring writer moves into a new apartment and discovers that her landlady has murdered her husband. Years later, the writer's stepson, a surgeon, reflects upon his stepmother and the strange stories she used to tell him. Meanwhile, the surgeon's lover vows to kill him if he does not leave his wife. Before she can follow-through on her crime of passion, though, the surgeon will cross paths with another remarkable woman, a cabaret singer whose heart beats delicately outside of her body. But when the surgeon promises to repair her condition, he sparks the jealousy of another man who would like to preserve the heart in a custom tailored bag. Murderers and mourners, mothers and children, lovers and innocent bystanders - their fates converge in a sinister, darkly beautiful web in which they are each powerless to escape. Macabre, fiendishly clever, and with a touch of the supernatural, Yoko Ogawa's Revenge creates a haunting tapestry of death - and the afterlife of the living.
