Summary (From the publisher):

The locals in the southern Italian town where he lives call him Signor Farfalla - Mr. Butterfly - for he is a discreet gentleman who paints rare butterflies. His life is inconspicuous - mornings spent brushing at a canvas, afternoons idling in the cafes, and evenings talking with his friend the town priest over a glass of brandy.

Yet there's more to this gentleman's life: Clara, the young student who moonlights in the town bordello, and another woman who arrives with $100,000 and a commission, but not for a painting of butterflies.

With this assignment returns the dark fear that has dogged Signor Farfalla. Almost instantly, he senses a deadly circle closing in on him, one that he may or may not elude.
