Baker & Taylor
When his lover, Emma, abandons him, Darius Halloway, a professor of French literature, is devastated, but as his obsession grows, he is driven by erotic and psychotic extremes to seek the ultimate revenge.

Blackwell North Amer
Everyone would agree that Darius Halloway was the most civilized of men, a professor of French literature, a connoisseur of ideas and women and wine, a perfect guest at life's dinner party. Darius himself would have especially agreed ... until Emma, waifish and insatiable Emma, leaves her empty clothes hangers rattling in his closet and walks out the door.
For a little while, it's not so bad. He's in shock. He thinks she will come back. Other women find his melancholy quite compelling, and there are compensations to be had. But then the sparrows of insomnia start picking at the inside of his skull. Life's little aggravating moments suddenly seem to require him to seek direct retaliation. Soon, all his smoothness and cleverness is directed toward wreaking the most elaborate revenge - until the ultimate act of revenge is upon him, and there he is, in the most damning of situations, with his nerves on fire and his heart in his throat ... and finally not thinking of Emma.
