From the internationally bestselling author of Purge and When the Doves Disappeared comes a ferociously plotted novel of intrigue, betrayal, and murder in the global fertility market.
Helsinki, 2016. Olenka sits on a bench, watching a family play in a dog park. A stranger sits down beside her. Olenka startles — this is the woman whose life she ruined decades ago. And now this woman may be about to do the same to Olenka. Yet, for a fragile moment, here they are, together — looking at their own children being raised by other people.
Moving seamlessly between modern-day Finland and post-Soviet, newly independent Ukraine, The Dog Park is a keenly observed, dark, and propulsive novel set at the intersection of East and West, centered in a web of exploitation and the commodification of the female body.
