This autumn, life is catching up with struggling novelist Thomas Quinn.
Five years ago, his mentor, Andrew Black, wrote a mystery novel that sold a million copies-and then he disappeared. Could it be that Quinn is being stalked by the hero of Black's book? His wife, Imogen, usually has the answers, but she's working on the other side of the world and talking to her on webcam just isn't the same.
Quinn finds himself in a world that might well be coming apart at the seams. If he could find Black, he might be able to discover the truth.
