"The crown of Henry James's achievement."--John Bayley

This classic Henry James morality tale tells of a triangle of friends and lovers
doomed by overreaching desire to treachery. In early-20th-century London,
Kate Croy is secretly engaged to Merton Denscher, a journalist possessing
all the qualities of an ideal husband except money. By chance, Kate befriends
American heiress Milly Theale, whom she learns is suffering from a mysterious
fatal illness. Kate, who truly cares for Milly, devises a scheme to maximize
their combined assets: She encourages Merton to take an interest in Milly,
to seduce her, and finally, to marry her. By lending her lover to brighten Milly's
few remaining days, Kate intends to make him a rich widower whom she herself
can marry. But such well-laid plans are not enough for the subtlety of the heart.
