From "South Korea's preeminent author of psychological thrillers" (Entertainment Weekly), a chilling novel about fathers and sons, and how far some will go to maintain control—and exact revenge Soon after Hyonsu takes a job working security at a dam in a remote village, the daughter of Yongje, the violent, narcissistic local landowner, is found dead in the lake. But she did not drown; an autopsy shows she was strangled. Two weeks later, Hyonsu opens the floodgates of the dam, causing the entire village to disappear. Sowon, Hyonsu's son and the flood's only known survivor, lives in the shadow of his father's shocking and widely publicized crime, confined to the fringes of society with his adoptive father, Mr. Ahn. His father's motive for flooding the village and the events that conspired to trigger this devastating tragedy have always been a mystery—until Sowon receives a package containing pieces of the puzzle. He will soon learn what really happened seven years ago, and confront a present danger that he never knew existed. Dark, shocking, and full of twists and turns, Seven Years of Darkness is the haunting new novel from the internationally celebrated author of The Good Son—a compulsively readable exploration of the power and peril of secrets.
