The Black Soul

Liam O'Flaherty

Tortured by his shell-shocked mind, a Stranger takes a room on the island of Inverara. Here lives Red John, scavenger of wreckage, with his wife, Mary, pirate blood in her veins. The couple's married years have been stifling, until the presence of the Stanger unleashes their passions.

Jonathan Cape 1924
