It's Carnival time 2012, and the Slovenian city of Maribor is European Capital of Culture.

In an attempt to maximize profit, local politicians and showman peddle every possible art form.

Amidst the hype, dramatist Adam Bely and Cuban-Austrian journalist Rosa Portero pursue a secret mission: to track down and overthrow the sinister octopus of 13 selected persons that seems to be in control.

On the way, they encounter a variety of important citizens, all entangled in a web of corruption and lies.

In the tradition of Bulgakov, Gogol and Kafka Ales Steger lets the forces of good and evil collide in this grandiose literary thriller.

This is a debut novel filled with striking personae, haunting images and a grotesque plot.

It proves, in the end, to be a journey into the heart of a European darkness.
