The locals in the southern Italian town where he lives call him Signor Farfalla Mr. Butterfly for he is a discreet gentleman who paints rare butterflies. His life is inconspicuous mornings spent brushing at a canvas, afternoons idling in the cafes, and evenings talking with his friend, the town priest, over a glass of brandy. Yet there are other sides to this gentleman's life: Clara, the young student who moonlights in the town bordello, and another woman, who arrives with one hundred thousand dollars and a commission but not for a painting of butterflies. With this assignment returns the dark fear that has dogged Signor Farfalla's mysterious life. Almost instantly, he senses a deadly circle closing in on him, one which he may or may not elude. Part thriller, part character study, part drama of deceit and self-betrayal, The American shows Martin Booth at the very height of his powers.

Great book. The narrator's voice is really good for the story.

Slow, plodding story that goes nowhere.
