Once upon a time, in a room above a German museum, there lived an old man ...A caretaker by day, by night he enjoys the sound of silence, broken only by the occasional crunch of a spider between his teeth.
However, the old man's solitude is disturbed as unusual activities at the museum start to attract attention.
A pair of young and outrageously beautiful lovers, a baker's son with a passion for the euphonium, and a dog called Hans are just some of the innocents pulled into Rhodes's mesmerising world.
