The act of eating this modest confection brings so much pleasure, it has become more prized than tea, spices, even liquor...and it all comes from one place: LUCIA DE CASTILLO’s factory in northern Friesland. Some will pay handsomely for the secret to her success, but Lucia’s factory isn’t what it seems to be. The horrors and cruelties that exist within its walls defy imagination itself.

Your girls have your back. There’s drugs to be used, crime to be done, and sex to be had—if you’re willing to pay the price. Can you dig it?
