From the Inside Flap:
Psychologist Alexander Lescziak savors a life of quiet sophistication on Manhattan?s Upper West Side, when a new patient declares he is the doctor?s half-brother, the product of a union between Lescziak?s Jewish mother and a German prisoner-of-war. Suddenly Lescziak finds his world closing in on him, as events acquire new significance: his failed marriage, his wife?s possible affair with his best friend, and the disappearance of his young lover, who also happens to be his suicidal patient. In search of answers, Lescziak delves into the recesses of his own mind, when the past threatens to press in inexorably upon the present.
