A DEATH IN PRAGUE is the story of Daniel Gervase: a middle-aged New Yorker who discovers that his wife Leah is having an affair. After leaving her, Dan decides that Prague will be the place to start over. He gradually finds happiness in his writing and in the love of Bozena, a beautiful young Czech girl. Cultural differences and a disparity in their ages seem meaningless until Leah´s unannounced arrival in the old city, which sets in motion a series of events that will forever alter the new life Dan has established.
