Increasingly ill at ease in the stifling environment, the dark history of the crumbling villa and its once-magnificent gardens draw him in. And when a Romanian girl who works for Silvana's fiance, Niki, asks for his help, Blume is dragged into the shadowy case of a missing girl and the horrors of the garden's malignant beauty.
