Helene Jegado was no ordinary child and her evil doings continue as she passes into adulthood. She has an unsavoury taste for death and uses her skills as a cook to poison her unsuspecting victims. One by one they fall in this macabre tale of murder most vile. It's unusual to have no compassion for a female protagonist but this was certainly the case here. Helene's story left behind a bitter aftertaste yet was strangely addictive too.
She poisoned people indiscriminately and as absent-mindedly as if she were throwing seed for the pigeons. For the men and women returning to the middle of the square, death was on its way.
