The Comfort of Strangers

Set in Venice, two unsuspecting tourists, Colin and Mary, are vulnerable prey for those who know their way around. When searching for a restaurant, the couple encounters a polite man called Robert, who offers help, and they enjoy a night of story telling and drinking. Yet somehow they will meet him again, and become drawn into a fantasy of violence and obsession.

    "The comfort of strangers"

    This would have made a good short story, if the obsessively intricate descriptions of every minute (and usually insignificant) detail were pruned out.
