A copy of Katerina was sent to Confessions of a Reviewer by the author Erik Hofstatter in exchange for an honest review. This is said review. This book is published by Creativia.
Erik Hofstatter. Probably one of my all-time favourite author names. No idea why. It just makes me smile every time I hear it. I have only read one other thing from Mr Hofstatter in the past and that was another short story called The Pariahs. You can read my review of it here. I loved it so grabbed the chance at reviewing this one.
Kamil is a medieval weapons trader living in the Red Light District in Prague. He hates prostitutes and all they stand for but is attached to his flat so won’t move. He doesn’t normally interact with the street girls. That is until he strikes up an unlikely friendship with Katerina.
After a couple of very strange episodes, Kamil realises there is something very strange and mysterious about Katerina. He decides to put aside his hatred of her profession and try and find out exactly what it is about Katerina that won’t let him say no.
