Publisher's Summary

De Angelis, an inscrutable northerner, is travelling to a small town perched in Sicily’s hinterland to negotiate a real estate transaction, only to find himself embroiled in a criminal conspiracy. While en route, the train he’s on mysteriously breaks down, forcing him to spend the night in a squalid whistle stop. What follows is a web of unsettling events, involving child prostitution and brazen killings. And at the heart of it: an alluring blue-eyed girl, Marinella. The chance encounter with the 11-year-old traps him in a psychological and moral cul-de-sac, leaving him no choice but to confront the type of man he really is.

Told in a cinematic, darkly humorous genre-bending prose, The Transaction traces De Angelis’ Kafka-esque descent into deviancy.
