From a powerful new voice in literary fiction comes an intense psychological thriller in the tradition of Donna Tartt, Stewart O'Nan and Patrick McGrath. Set in a wealthy area of New York City, the story begins in 1994, when Luke Nightingale is six and his parents are finalising the divorce. The novel is narrated by Luke's cynical, cruelly perceptive and violent alter ego Daniel. A novel about mothers, sons, the dangers of the imagination, the precariousness of sanity and the temptations of power, this is a stunning debut from a promising writer.

I can't remember how I stumbled about this book but I am very glad I did. Very much a character study but also a haunting mystery. Keeps you guessing untill the end.

I happened upon this book as I was browsing the shelves. I was pleasantly surprised by how creative and well written it was.

A truly unique book and worth a read. Lots of fodder for book club
