Black Book of Secrets
What could be more interesting to read than a book full of people's deepest, darkest secrests? That's exactly what this Black Book is- transcribed confessions for which the pawnbroker has paid. A cast of characters is paraded through as the pawnbroker and his assistant make a home in a remote mountain village: the butcher, the bookseller, the gravedigger, the priest, and the rich man who blackmails them all. As the town's secrets are slowly collected, unrest and questions begin to arise. What can the pawnbroker do to stop the blackmail? Will he use everyone's secrets agains them? Can the assistant resist reading the secrets in the book from before? This dark book will compel you to join their journey and make you examine the nature of man.
