(From the publisher):
The moment genteel Southern bachelor Tristram Heade arrives in Philadelphia in search of a rare book, a mysterious metamorphosis begins. He is mistaken everywhere for a man of whom he has never heard but soon comes to know fearfully well. His diabolical double is everything he is not: a high-living playboy and insatiable womanizer who goes by the name of Angus T. Markham.
The horrified Tristram Heade does his unsuccessful best to correct this macabre mistake—until an achingly lovely young woman comes to his hotel room to yield at last to Angus T. Markham's desire. Heade abandons all attempts to deny what is now his desire as well—and with this act, abandons his last hold on the guidelines of his past. He is in a time and place where all things are possible, and nothing is forbidden.
Tristram Heade follows the ravishing Fleur Grunwald into a world where pleasure and pain intermingle. Where the naked truth about her and her marriage is obscured by lies as intricately woven as the tattoos that cover her exquisite body. And where her startling shifts from outraged innocence to shameless sensuality make Tristram Heade stronger and weaker than he has ever been. He has become both her avenger and her slave. Can he believe that her husband has made her submit to the unspeakable practices she describes in depraved detail? Should he obey her entreaty to rid her of the man who has made her the plaything of his every unnatural lust? Should he act with the honor of Tristram Heade to come to her aid—or with the carnal appetite of a monstrous Angus T. Markham to revel in her vulnerability? Who is who, what is true and good and what false and evil, and where will it all lead?
