Joined by her friend Martin, a filmmaker, and American academic Tamara, she flees to Bez in southern France to escape detection and to pursue the trail of the beguiling Adele. Fifty years before, Adele had been rescued from Bez by Dr. Jonas Sylvester.

He brought her to Paris where she captured the citys attention with her alluring beauty and air of secrecy. When Sylvester brings over sister Blanche to look after Adele, he is not prepared for the love between them nor their escape from him. He takes his revenge.Moving between Blanches life with Adele and Celias search for clues into that life, the stories converge in Bez where the three friends discover Blanches existence and Adeles true, if unbelievable, identity. The effects of the revelation are shattering—Adeles erotic power extends beyond the grave, melding past and present into a single reality.

A provocative and original novel by an accomplished literary writer who steps beyond the boundaries of what we know as male and female.
