)-- Eyes of the Slain Woman is a collection of three novellas that explore grief and the tenacity of the human spirit. In Echoes of Hungry Blood, Solo, a disenchanted doctor leaves his practice in the city to work in a small town, where he faces the challenge of caring for those who have committed crimes against his family—a decision that leads to regret and eventual deliverance. In The Last Next, Solo returns to the city and remarries. His new wife is soon diagnosed with a terminal illness, and unable to cope with the pain, she requests euthanasia. His agreement and ensuing murder trial and conviction are a journey of growth and redemption. Eyes of the Slain Woman narrates the harrowing experiences of Ma Ebo, a long-widowed woman, who following her son’s murder is persuaded to visit his killer in prison. In the process, she finds healing and the liberation of forgiveness.
