Publisher's Summary

One windy spring day in the Chilterns Joe Rose's calm, organised life is shattered by a ballooning accident. The afternoon, Rose reflects, could have ended in mere tragedy, but for his brief meeting with Jed Parry. Unknown to Rose, something passes between them - something that gives birth in Parry to an obsession so powerful that it will test to the limits Rose's beloved scientific rationalism, threaten the love of his wife Clarissa and drive him to the brink of murder and madness.

Action literature

The novel has quite a lot of action for a "literary" work. Although the characters were interesting, none of them were at all likable, so it was hard to engage on an emotional level. The use of high-brow vocabulary and references were fitting to the protagonist's snobbishness, but also felt like the author showing off. The narration was (suitably) upper-crust, but this meant that, for me, it wasn't terribly pleasing to listen to. The recurring science references appealed to my geekish tendencies.
