This book uses the spiral shape as a key to a multitude of strange and seemingly disparate stories about art, nature, science, mathematics, and the human endeavour. In a way, the book is itself organized as a spiral, with almost disconnected chapters circling around and closing in on the common theme. A particular strength of the book is its extremely cross-disciplinary nature - everything is fun, and everything is connected! At the same time, the author puts great emphasis on mathematical and scientific correctness, in contrast, perhaps, with some earlier books on spirals. Subjects include the mathematical properties of spirals, sea shells, sun flowers, Greek architecture, air ships, the history of mathematics, spiral galaxies, the anatomy of the human hand, the art of prehistoric Europe, Alfred Hitchcock, and spider webs, to name a few.

Mara is unaware that she is not the only one with the perfect view of her own life. Someone who has known her since the very beginning is watching her from across the lake. He has been hiding in the shadows around and behind her for years, even long before she moved into her beautiful house with her loving husband and his lovely daughter. The watcher has witnessed all Mara has suffered over the years and every devastating mistake she has made, but he also knows why she made those mistakes. He even understands why she is sabotaging her perfect family, and why she pours wine down her own throat every night like water. And he knows she needs him to watch over her so that he'll be ready to rescue her when the time comes. Then the watcher sees the explosion that happens when Mara's mind finally shatters, and when he comes out of hiding to save her, Mara is forced to come face to face with a beast from her childhood that has been dead for almost twenty years.
