«Pleasingly deadpan, The Plotters manages to be both humorous and violent» says The Guardian about Un-Su Kim's most recently translated book, which we picked for our next quarterly book club.

Synopsis:
The important thing is not who pulls the trigger but who’s behind the person who pulls the trigger – the plotters, the masterminds working in the shadows. Raised by Old Raccoon in The Library of Dogs, Reseng has always been surrounded by plots to kill – and by books that no one ever reads. In Seoul’s corrupt underworld, he was destined to be an assassin. Until he breaks the rules. That’s when he meets a trio of young women – a convenience store worker, her wheelchair-bound sister, and a cross-eyed obsessive knitter – with an extraordinary plot of their own.
The Plotters is a cracking noir thriller combined with the soul, wit and lyricism of a highly original literary voice.
