Mirolla leads readers into questions about what makes someone evil, the nature of right and wrong, and how people can be influenced by others. A late shift in narrative style, integrating Guilio's journal, is jarring, but Mirolla's vivid writing and the psychological intrigue will pull readers through to the last page.

Synopsis

The landlord, the husband, the wife, and the lover. Giulio di Orio, an assistant lecturer in Philosophy, brings one of his students, known as Torp—short for Torpedo—to the Vancouver flat he shares with his wife Nicole. Soon their landlord is convinced that Torp is the devil incarnate, and the police have arrested him for the street bombings that have been plaguing the city.
A sexually-charged tale bubbling with lust, suspected murder, and the twilight of the flower children—all set against the backdrop of martial law in 1970 Vancouver.
