This is my second attempt reading this book. I have had this book since 2011 and somehow I have not been able to complete it. I am giving up on this. I will try again
When Rilke, a dissolute and promiscuous auctioneer, comes across a collection of highly disturbing photographs during a house clearance he feels compelled to unearth more about the deceased owner who coveted them.
Driven to discover whether the images represent a real event or a fantasy, Rilke is drawn into a nether world of illicit urges and powerful obsessions.
A compulsive journey of discovery, decadence and deviousness follows.
