Publisher's Summary

One winter’s morning, Lorimer Black - young, good-looking but with a somewhat troubled expression - goes to keep a perfectly routine business appointment and finds a hanged man. A bad start to the day by any standards and an ominous portent. Sure enough, Lorimer’s life is turned upside down and inside out in ways he could never have foreseen...An unabridged reading by Simon Shepherd.

I enjoyed this novely enormously and thought that Simon Shepherd's reading was excellent. I understand a previous reviewer's comments on the breathy quality of the reading but did not find it at all off-putting and felt it was perfectly suited to the dialogue. A very intelligent and enjoyable read.

William Boyd is a great story teller and this book takes you into the complex and often humorous world of a cast of three dimensional and believable characters. It's one of those books that you're really sorry when you get to the end.
