“[Coelho’s] special talent seems to be his ability to speak to everyone at once. The kind of spirituality he espouses is to all comers. . . . His readers often say that they see their own lives in his own books.”
New Yorker

From the bestselling author of The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho, comes an absorbing new novel that holds a mirror up to our culture’s obsession with fame, glamour, and celebrity.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A fabulous twenty-first-century tale...Coelho’s tone is intelligent and ironic, and his style is sharp and biting.”

    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel 

  • “This tour de force demonstrates forcefully why Brazilian novelist Paulo Coelho is reputed to be the bestselling author in the world...Mixing social satire and sheer panic, this fast-paced thriller drives to its breathtaking conclusion, leaving us amazed that the author of The Alchemist would also be capable of this.” 

    Barnes and Noble editorial review

  • “Audie Award nominee Paul Boehmer’s rich renderings of the wonderfully complex secondary characters are the highlight of Coelho’s latest work, which is quite a departure from his trademark mystical parables.”

    Library Journal (audio review)

  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " Did not like this one, it is nothing like The Alchemist. "

    " Murderer in the name of love has never appealed to me, but this was strictly revenge. "

    " This is a book I will probably have to read again... in a year or two. It is dark but I put it down quite often: the main character, Igor, too much explanation spent on his obsessive love turning into justifiable evil but also I was not interested in the other characters. There's a lot of shifting in the narrative which did not help neither. Igor could have been interesting in all his quiet madness and still I did not care for him or any of the 5 other characters. "

    " I feel that the author was looking for a vehicle to rant about certain issues and wrapped them around an interesting character study of a mad man. I wanted more of the story and less rants about why airlines don't let you turn on your cell phones. Although interesting their own, they didn't often advance the plot and I found them distracting. I had been wanting to read the Alchemist, but picked this up first, and now I don't know if I will bother to read it. "
