A sinuous, strange and utterly beguiling novel of sexual obsession. Set in an opulent villa in the heart of a Latin American city in the throes of revolution, three boyhood friends, now middle-aged, including the narrator, Nicholas Battersby, gather at the home of Dr. Pacheco for a semi-annual dinner party, during the course of which they discover the long-harboured secrets of the house and Pacheco's obsessive imprisonment of the beautiful and enigmatic senora puccini, as well as secrets about their own complusions.
