The Savages look like a completely ordinary family: father Titus; houseproud mother Angelica; teenage daughter Sasha and little brother Ivan; baby Katya; and grandfather Oleg. But behind the carefully-maintained facade, all is not as it seems. The truth is that the Savages aren't ordinary at all: in fact, they have a dark and unusual secret.
When Sasha gets a new boyfriend, Jack, she isn't at all keen for him to meet the rest of the family - especially given that he's a vegetarian. For most families this wouldn't be a problem, but for the carnivorous Savages - and especially her strict, patriarchal father- she knows this will be a big issue. Meanwhile, a curious private detective is watching the Savages. Will he discover their secret - and expose the sinister truth?
This deliciously dark family story is a real treat. Creepy, funny and thought-provoking, it will delight readers with a taste for surreal horror and black comedy.
