Sophie, a professor at the University of Texas, has darkness in her past: the loss of her only child, a sinister cult that enveloped the life and mind of the only man she ever loved--and threatened to destroy her sanity. Finally, she feels she's got it all together--until tragedy strikes once more when a deranged student with a gun appears and shatters her sense of secutity. Looking to escape and tempted by a conclusion to the mysterious story of a slave girl she's been studying, Sophie grudgingly accepts a job to accompany a former fling and a select group of students on a archeological dig at the famed Night Villa on the shores of Capri.

What follows is the delicious mix of history, mythology, intrigue, and modern drama I have come to expect from Goodman's books.

Impossible to put down!
