Summary
Romulus Ledbetter was not always homeless. He was once a devoted husband, loving father and Juilliard-trained musician with a brilliant future. He now lives in a cave in Inwood Park, foraging for food in New York City's better neighborhoods. When a corpse is dumped at the entrance of his cave on Valentine's Day, his obsessive quest to identify the murderer forces him to re-enter society... a society of more temptation and greater obsession than he had ever imagined
Summary
Homeless and delusional, Romulus Ledbetter lives in a cave in Inwood Park, until his discovery of a body and his obsessive quest for the truth force his reentry into "civilized" society as he attempts to solve the mystery he has found
