Synopsis: With this sequel to Testing the Current, McPherson again proves that he is a writer of questing intelligence, luminous insight and delicious wit. Andrew MacAllister (called Tommy in his childhood depicted in the earlier book) is now 40, married to lovely, loving Ann, father of a delightful daughter, and about to achieve success as a playwright. In London for his new play’s debut, he encounters the former Daisy Meyer, the “older woman” who enchanted him when he was eight, and has an adulterous liaison with her. Other temptations lurk, including that of a young Englishman who follows Andrew and Ann to Bermuda, bent on seducing Andrew. Confused, guilty (for he adores his wife), plainly enmeshed in a midlife crisis, Andrew tries to cope with the demands of his career while wrestling with the demons in his conscience.
