If I die before I wake ...A grisly murder is committed at a health resort situated in a recently renovated farmhouse, which turns out to be notorious for being haunted. Attorney Thora Gudmundsdottir is called upon by the owner of the resort -- the prime suspect in the case -- to represent him. Her investigations uncover some very disturbing occurrences at the farm decades earlier -- things that have never before seen the light of day ...MY SOUL TO TAKE is a chilling, dark and witty crime novel, and a welcome return for Thora, the heroine of the highly-acclaimed LAST RITUALS.
Yrsa Sigurdardottir works as a civil engineer in Reykjavik. Her books for children have won prizes and great acclaim. MY SOUL TO TAKE is her second adult novel.
