Beautiful Beatrice-Joanna is in love, so she hires the repellent De Flores to kill the man her father wants her to marry. But once the deed is done Beatrice discovers it’s not money or jewels that De Flores intends to claim as his reward, but something far more precious. The Changeling is a tale of how love and sex can drive us mad.
