Gentle, generous Theo would tell you that he feels quite logically happy about sharing Lelia with his best friend, Ramón.
Although the word 'logical' troubles him sometimes. (Can love ever be logical?) It is he, at any rate, who eventually finds Lelia dead in her painter's studio in Mexico City. She has been raped, her handsome face bloodily mutilated. Theo's thoughts immediately turn to Ramón as the natural suspect: hot tempered, moody, a man whose Catholic soul has already been damned by passion - unable to marry Lelia, unable to give her up . . .
A confession is made, but are we to believe it?
