“A book that's revealing, surprising, compelling, gripping.”
“A psychological journey from safety into obsession and secrecy. It mirrors a physical journey from flamboyant Regency England through a defeated Europe struggling to create a new order after the upheavals of the Napoleonic conquests.”
Strange and haunting, a gothic novel
with a modern consciousness.
A quirky, darkly mischievous novel about love, obsession and the burden of charisma, played out against the backdrop of Venice's watery, decadent glory.
