About the book:

Claude is single, middle-aged and feeling it, dissatisfied with his solitary life in New Orleans. Barhopping with the ghastly Mona, whose mind dwells on marriage, he meets Alexandra, beautiful, strong-willed and independent, with a bizarre talent for knife-throwing. In a few weeks Claude is completely under her spell, quitting his job and decamping with her to her friend Diana's house, hidden in the bayous. They complete a strange little band: Diana, lovely, selfish, musical and seven months pregnant; her black cook-housekeeper and friend, Collie; and Banjo, the invisible old handyman, who for some reason has been granted free board and bourbon for life, and does nothing but tend a strange and fantastic maze of his own creation. At the house Claude hears conflicting stories about a man who resembled himself, who was involved with both Alexandra and Diana, and was found murdered in a motel room. Half-revealed relations and emotions coalesce into a disturbing narrative in this mysterious and unsettling story by the author of Mary Reilly and Set in Motion.
