'An author with a flair for terror' The New Yorker
Who killed Louie Lepetino? Was it Barby, with her silvery sheen of hair, looking like a top model and acting like a woman madly in love?
Or the beautiful Toni, who is hiding some strange secrets?
Could it be Otto, a handsome refugee, nicknamed Blue Eyes and an object of attraction for Barby?
Kit, a cop's son, has come back to New York to track down his best buddy's killer. It had to be murder: Louie wasn't the suicidal type. One person stands in the way of his revenge - The Wobblefoot, his unseen nemesis from two terrible years spent in captivity during the Spanish Civil War. He is watching. One false step will mean curtains for Kit. But Kit is willing to take any risk for a friend - even murder in cold blood.
