Indigo is a color the human eye can never truly see, a slice of the spectrum imbued with the promise of invisibility. But in the dark world occupied by Jack Chambers' father, indigo will also lead to places of unknown treachery, and ultimately, to madness. As Jack tries to fulfill the terms of his father's last will and testament, he is led on a journey of the flesh and spirit, through the ancient landmarks of Rome, to a group of people who will stop at nothing in their pursuit of invisibility Among them, Jack will enter an incendiary relationship with a woman with an insatiable appetite for pleasure, dabble in a liaison forbidden by blood, and explore the exotic undersides of two cities worlds apart. Only after Jack glimpses both the intoxicating pleasures and hidden pitfalls of indigo can he perceive its horrid danger.

Blending an exploration of the senses with a complex tale of relationships, Indigo is a stunningly literate thriller that signals the arrival of a powerful new voice.
