When Aleksandr Sozlzhenitsyn, the Russian Nobel Laureate and dissident was only a baby, his father Isaak died in a hunting accident.
Then how do you explain the discovery of The Confession of Isaak Solzhenitsyn, written thirty years after his death?
It tells of how a Cossack officer was betrayed and incarcerated for twenty years by his three closest friends, how he assumed another man’s identity to escape and then took his final, bloody revenge.

Makeshift heroes led by Lucifer herself.
