From our most celebrated writer of the psychological thriller comes this nerve-wracking yet eerily beautiful work of erotic obsession and madness. In the summer of 1959, Stella Raphael joins her psychiatrist husband, Max, at his new posting-a maximum-security hospital for the criminally insane. Beautiful and headstrong, Stella soon falls under the spell of Edgar Stark, a brilliant and magnetic sculptor who has been confined to the hospital for murdering his wife in a psychotic rage. But Stella's knowledge of Edgar's crime is no hindrance to the volcanic attraction that ensues-a passion that will consume Stella's sanity and destroy her and the lives of those around her.

Review quote

"A book so rewarding to read that I found myself spacing out chapters, restraining my curiosity to savor the elegant sentences. This is a thrilling book to read if only for its plot."
