They would rather die than become mothers.
The Others by Sarah Blau is the timely and controversial Israeli bestseller about four women and their fatal promise not to have children.
A serial killer is on the loose in Tel Aviv. Each victim is found tied to a chair with a baby doll glued to their hands, the word 'mother' carved into their forehead like a mark of Cain.
Stowed away between the wax figurines of the Bible museum where she works, Sheila Heller suspects that she alone knows the connection between the victims. The killings seem to be linked by a pact their group all made at university - to never have children.
What Sheila doesn't know is who is committing these gruesome acts of ritualistic violence, and whether she herself might be the next target.
