When Sam Lattimore meets Elizabeth Church the sparks are immediate, leading quickly to a marriage that is loving, erotic, and brief. When Elizabeth is murdered, Sam's life soon becomes complicated. For one thing, in a moment of desperate confusion, he sells his life story to a Norwegian filmmaker known for the stylized violence of his films. For another, Sam has begun "seeing" Elizabeth and holding conversations with her almost every evening, and watching her line up books on a small beach. What at first seems simply hallucination born of terrible grief reveals itself, evening by evening, as something else entirely.
