Boris Starling – The Law of the Heart

In his ninth novel, Starling’s three protagonists confront emotions they’ve all tried to suppress. For rollercoaster designer, Theo, life is living on the edge, immune to commitment. In North Korea he meets tour guide, Min, who has a soul that wants to soar but feels safer to have walls around her heart and mind. Min’s grandmother, Cuckoo, hides her own heartbreak. How much are all three prepared to risk?
