Stan, an American grad student, falls for Lina, a lovely Italian scholar, and his unrequited passion turns perverse. When he stalks her from a mid-west college town to Bologna’s ancient streets, they are joined by Lina’s American lover John, who is also Stan’s mentor. With jealousy and deceit fueling their love-lust triangle, they match wits with their lives at stake as they flee and chase down the storied Italian boot to a shocking conclusion on volcanic Mt. Etna.
“…pacy, gripping…about love grown monstrous and out of control”—Victoria Best, Tales from the Reading Room
“…not for the literary faint of heart…a powerful engaging story…”—Charlene Mabie-Gamble, Literary R&R
“Alfred Hitchcock would have enjoyed directing this thriller about stalker Stan’s psychopathy and victim Lina’s plunge into fear, depression, and guilt. This is a novel that you either stay up all night to read or, like me, you’ll have to walk away as the anxiety escalates, only to be called back by the need to know.”–Irene, Goodreads
