A cynical local reporter discovers everything in his past is complete fabrication; from the stories of his parents’ lives to the photos in the family albums.
Here starts the most important investigation he has ever undertaken, centred on the mother he never knew. He must find what links the woman who gave birth to him to the murderous past of the Yugoslav Secret Services and the liquidation of political opponents abroad. In the process his journey will take him to the site of wartime atrocities, on the trail of fake suicides across Europe, and back to the fate of a local Jewish mystic.
Through his own unique and now recognisable style, Nikolaidis takes us into a world of criminal intrigue and the dissection of human existence. Powerful and rich in philosophy, readers will be gripped by this binding narrative and the existential dilemmas it reveals.
'TILL KINGDOM COMES is ... compulsively readable mixture of humour and dark fate, Nikolaidis bitterly explodes all Balkan post-Communist myths. After reading it, you will hate life, but in an immensely happy way!' — Slavoj Žižek
