Summary
"[After] a harrowing plane crash Maja, the pregnant wife of the unimaginably wealthy Philippe, is killed, but their daughter, Angellica, survives. Philippe's obsession with the girl's safety morphs into something sinister and grotesque. A young man named Darius, visiting Philippe with a business proposition, encounters Angelica and intuits their secret. He decides to rescue her, but the attempt goes awry"--from front jacket flap. "A fantastical novel which reworks Shakespeare's 'Pericles' into a parable for today"--
