The world might be in the throes of a global recession but when an author on brink of despair, a musician, a supermodel and a Satanic sect meet with the cream of Italian society at the home of a Roman property tycoon, the world outside the mansion's walls is soon forgotten. This book pulls no punches in its satire of the excesses of modern life.
