Count Osostro gives liberally to those who entertain him and punished savagely those who fail. When a mysterious juggler shatters a plate, the count condemns him to lose his right hand--which is exactly the prize the juggler had sought. With this stunning reversal, master storyteller Morressy begins a gripping Faustian novel about lies and the Father of Lies, presenting a classic quest that examines the price and the power of our humanity.
