about this item

In this fascinating psychological neo-noir mystery, a notorious late 19th-century photograph provides the key to a contemporary murder.In 1882, the young Lou Andreas-Salome, writer, psychoanalyst and femme fatale, appears with Friedrich Nietzche and another man in a bizarre photograph taken in Luzern, Switzerland. Over thirty years later, an intense art student in Freud’s Vienna presents Lou Salome with his own drawing based on the infamous photograph.In the present day, Tess Berenson, a brilliant performance artist, moves into an art deco loft in downtown Oakland, California. Her new apartment, she learns, was vacated in a hurry by a professional dominatrix who used the name Chantal Desforges. Tess’s curiosity about Chantal intensifies when her body is discovered in the trunk of a stolen car at Oakland airport.Embarking on an obsessive investigation into the murder, Tess discovers a link to the original Luzern photograph and the 1913 drawing – but as she gets closer to the shocking truth, Tess finds that she too is in jeopardy.
