A return to his native Romania offers a unique opportunity for Boston architect Luca Leontin to come to terms with his past; instead, he becomes enmeshed in the vengeful designs of a man with whom he shares a life-long history of passion for art, as well as an indelible bitterness over the love of one woman. Luca finds himself drawn to the Circe, the infamous Bucharest nightclub, where the illusion of erotic fulfillment could cost him his life.
From a totalitarian society that crumbled in December 1989 to a contemporary world gripped by fear of international terrorism, Adrift is a study of cultural dislocation and the ensuing alienation that triggers both our yearning to return to our origins and the hopeless need to find what is lost forever. This is a story of
obsession and revenge, and, above all, the survival of love despite the corrosive action of lifelong mistrust and suspicion.
