Overview
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.
