The tense, chilling story of four women haunted by a childhood trauma.

When they were children, Sae, Maki, Akiko, and Yuko were tricked into separating from their friend Emily by a mysterious stranger. Then the unthinkable occurred: Emily was found murdered hours later.

Sae, Maki, Akiko, and Yuko weren't able to accurately describe the stranger's appearance to the police after Emily's body was discovered. Asako, Emily's mother, cursed the surviving girls, vowing that they would pay for her daughter's murder.

Like Confessions, Kanae Minato's award-winning, internationally best-selling debut, Penance is a dark and voice-driven tale of revenge and psychological trauma that will leave listeners breathless.
