Vienna,1803. The Riding Club provides privacy for its members who come to enjoy the charms of the men of the house. Every night, the Italian Nance, appearing as the beautiful "Miss Nancy," uses satire and lewd jokes to lash out at those in power. It is a dangerous act fueled by his rage at those who destroyed his past and stole his future.
Nothing means as much to Nance as revenge-not the love of a good man, not the devotion of a young acolyte, not the respect of the "brothers" who work with him. Then men from another hidden society approach him to promise triumph over his enemies. Their services come at a cost, but he will know the price only when the bill comes due.
In this tale from the Judah Halevi Journals, two groups of men hiding from those in power warily join together to fight for justice. The reader enters their secret worlds where they tell the truths of their lives only to those they trust-those who share their past pain, their present struggles and their future hopes.
