Through a series of bizarre events, Igor and Sabine, musicians at the Antwerp Opera, become entangled in a web of intrigue, beginning with a brutal murder in New York. While a famous conductor guides the musicians towards a new production of Tristan und Isolde, the Opera becomes the background for international espionage. Humor and irony underline the action, which moves through Flensburg, Brussels and Zrich to New York and Washington, D.C. When will it all end? Perhaps not until the source of coded signals emanating from the opera building is found. Perhaps not until Igor can place a pebble on the stone.

Towering billboards featuring photorealistic portraits of popular cinema stars and political leaders dominated the cityscape of Chennai, in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu, throughout the second half of the twentieth century. Studying the manufacture and reception of these billboards_known locally as banners and cutouts_within the context of the entwined histories of the cinema industry and political parties in Tamil Nadu, Preminda Jacob reveals the broader significance of these fragments of visual culture beyond their immediate function as pretty pieces of advertising. Jacob analyzes the juxtaposition of cinematic and political imagery in the extra-cinematic terrain of Chennai's city streets and how this placement was pivotal to the elevation of regional celebrities to cult status. When interpreting these images and discussing their political and cultural resonance within the Tamil Nadu community, Jacob draws upon multiple perspectives to give appropriate context to this fascinating form of visual media.

His link to the Outside, his chance to break free, is Claudia, the warden's daughter, herself determined to escape an arranged marriage. They are up against impossible odds, but one thing looms above all: Incarceron itself is alive . . .
