Bill Eidson's first novel is an early and frightening look at the concept of identity theft. When Boston-based dive shop owner Rod Konrad runs short of money, he decides to share his apartment. Bette, his girlfriend, isn't ready to move in, so he places an ad for a roommate. Brendan is nice enough - as nice as a stranger invading your home can be. He certainly takes to Rod. But isn't he trying too hard? He talks like Rod, acts like him, and is always just a little too close. Left unchecked, he'll not only steal Rod's clothes - but his life.
The Little Brother is a fast, dark thriller that tackles the very concept of who we are.
