The Quiet GirlDownloadable Audiobook - 2007
Kaspar Krone, a world-renowned circus clown, is wanted for tax evasion and on the verge of extradition from Denmark. Then Krone is drafted into the service of a mysterious order of nuns who promise to help him if he'll safeguard a group of children with mystical abilities -- abilities that Krone shares. When one of the children goes missing, Krone sets off to find the young girl and bring her back, making a shocking series of discoveries along the way about her identity and the true intentions of his young wards. The result is a fast-paced, philosophical thriller blending social realism with the literary fantastic and pitting art and spirituality against corporate interests and nothing less than the will to war by the industrialized world.
