1/2 star. A struggle between good and evil unfolds in this fable. When a stranger arrives in an isolated mountain village, he brings with him a devilish offer: If anybody in the town is murdered within a week, every surviving resident will receive a fortune in gold. His evil instigation throws the townspeople into a moral dilemma. This is a moral parable with many references to Biblical temptations. I prefer my "morality plays" to be much more subtle - where there is not a "devil" figure laying out a temptation. I would rather see real people coping with more subtle moral dilemmas. This felt more like a sermon than a novel. Not my cup of tea. Cannot recommend!!
