The successful and renowned conductor of a major symphony orchestra in Sao Paulo, he is married to a beautiful and talented violinist, close to thirty years his junior. But his happiness is undermined by two fears: that he will never wholly share her life because, unlike her, he is not Jewish; and that she is unfaithful to him. Black Waltz opens a fascinating and harrowing window into a mind bordering on paranoia and psychosis. In it the reader accompanies dark passions that presage the inexorable sundering of a relationship and lead inescapably to its unforgettable climax.
