Houston publishes so many books a year that he can't possibly write them himself. He has a ghost team; writers, agents, publishers. So when he takes a year out to write something of quality, a novel that will win prizes, a lot of people stand to lose their livelihoods. Now Houston, the prime suspect in his wife's murder, has disappeared. He could be anywhere and there are many who'd like to find him.

"A high-concept novel tackled in unabashed fashion." (Independent)
"A cracking thriller ... the story unfolds at a white-knuckle pace with a sense of the unknown that is genuinely disturbing." (The Times)
Really enjoy Philip Kerr's novels, especially the Bernie Gunther series. This book, though, is lacking. The story is ok but nothing special. The narration, however, is exceptional.
Not his best. Almost gave up a few times. Bring back Gunther as a young man perhaps . I was disappointed
