'Marvellously paced and ingeniously plotted. A real page-turner' Observer
_________________________

One winter 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 anyone's standards, and an ominous portent.
For Lorimer works in the only-slightly corrupt business of financial adjusting, and he is about to learn that it is much uglier - and even more crooked - than he ever imagined. Suddenly, he's being unfairly blamed for all kinds of irregularities. Next, his life is threatened. And, lastly, he's coming to realise that the life he has led till now - the one someone wants to rub out - is one big fat lie . . .

Recenzii

"[T]his novel is everything good fiction should be."  --The Washington Post Book World

"Combines a touch of Dickensian realistic comedy with a Kafkaesque sense of modern urban terror. . . . [William Boyd] has a rare talent." --The Baltimore Sun

"Boyd has a frisky style . . . that will keep you chortling . . . all the way to the end." --The Los Angeles Times Book Review

"The storytelling talents that marked Mr. Boyd's earlier books are fully in evidence in this entertaining novel." --The New York Times
