Paolo Levin is an accomplished American concert pianist living in Rome. Intensely self-absorbed, Paolo values his independence above all else and has no desire to be trapped in the commitments of a relationship. But he can’t seem to shake off the attentions of Ralph, a sinister crippled boy who is in love with Paolo and persists in stalking him.
One morning Paolo awakes in terror to find himself handcuffed to his bed with Ralph looming over him. Paolo’s most precious parts – his hands – are to be forfeit unless he submits to Ralph’s bizarre demands . . . This literary thriller's unexpected twists and turns will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the shocking conclusion.
