The Judas Glass is the story of one man's horrible - and wonderful - return to life, of revenge and deliverance, and of love beyond death. It is a tale of doomed love and mysterious murder, that depicts the vampire myth's seductive magic but remakes it into a new experience.
Richard Stirling is a successful attorney, devoted to protecting the rights of the underprivileged. His life is his work, and even the disappointments of his marriage, and his sorrow at the violent world around him, fail to shake his belief in justice.
His life is illuminated by a love affair with a beautiful pianist, Rebecca Pennant, a woman full of surprises, music, and humor, and he is reawakened to the possibilities of life. When Rebecca is brutally murdered, this vanishes.
Stirling's mourning is interrupted by the arrival of a lost heirloom he remembers from his childhood, a beautiful looking-glass now returned without explanation. This mirror's reflections gradually transform his experiences of the sensual world, even as it draws him over to the other side of life. When he awakens from death, he find himself open to new sensations, even bloodlust. And now he has the power of both life and death.
