"The novel centers on a slave trader who kills an African man and steals his drum, which is engraved with a distinct face of a demon... [His son's] wife's and daughters' lives end tragically, and with a demented expression on his face, he ends up walking away hand-in-hand with the jester." (Berona. Wordless Books. p. 52.).
