"[I]t's a Hitchcockian tease that compiles a number of virtuoso suspense set pieces..."
An English pianist living in Rome witnesses the brutal murder of his neighbor, a psychic. With the help of a tenacious young reporter he tries to discover the killer using very unconventional methods--and the two are soon drawn into a shocking web of dementia, savagery and violence.
The murder of a composer's neighbor has ties to the occult book the tunesmith is currently reading. When the songwriter decides to investigate the murder, he finds himself ensnared in a bloody web of intrigue -- particularly when the author of the occult book also turns up dead.
