Abstract:

"In the stifling interior of a run-down London house, a man and a woman move through the cluttered rooms in heavy Victorian dress--although the time is the present day. He--who is perhaps Theo--enacts the role of Dr. Crippen. She--who is perhaps Vivien--is at times his beautiful Belle, at times Ethel le Neve, for whom Belle was murdered; at times she is Ethel disguised as a boy. So it is that they are able to make love. Within this erotic structure Viven rules; the man submits--curiously detached from his passion--in a game that is not of his choosing. Into this ménage already saturated with sexuality comes another figure: a woman infinitely depraved, a true voyeur, whose own sensual power finds release in destruction. With disinterested malice she creates for Theo a wholly new fantasy--his own tremendous game--which comes to absorb and possess him totally. The catalyst then departs, leaving the man and woman to play out their now opposing rolls to the shattering end."--Dust jacket.
