Synopsis: This is the story of a man who hides a dark secret from his past. Despite the fact that he has served his time and changed his name, there are too many people around who have not forgotten that Morrow is a murderer. He is pursued by a collection of strange characters.
From the Inside Flap: From the internationally acclaimed author of The Book of Evidence and Ghosts comes a mesmerizing novel that is both a literary thriller and a love story as sumptuously perverse as Lolita. “A strange and dreamlike book . . . Banville has a breathtaking style.”–Boston Globe.
