The brothers karamazov
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

When brutal landowner Fyodor Karamazov is murdered, the lives of his sons are changed irrevocably- Mitya, the sensualist, whose bitter rivalry with his father immediately places him under suspicion for parricide; Ivan, the intellectual, whose mental tortures drive him to breakdown; the spiritual Alyosha, who tries to heal the family's rifts; and the shadowy figure of their bastard half-brother Smerdyakov.
