Summary :

Gifted, magnetic, a virtuoso with a short temper, Lee defies his background to win a scholarship to the prestigious Cabresi academy of music.

Slowly, stealthily, James fuels Lee's increasing need for women and illicit substances, the better to pull the strings, to keep him close.

Watching all of this is Peter, whose conversations with Lee call into question Lee's tangled relationships with James. Peter appears uniquely placed to present a clear picture of this obsessive, increasingly destructive friendship. Gradually, he reveals the truth behind their power struggle, and the events which led to Lee's tragic drug-fuelled death...
