When successful author Gerald Candless dies of a sudden heart attack, his eldest, adoring daughter Sarah embarks on a memoir of him and soon discovers that her perfect father was not all he appeared to be. That in fact he wasn’t Gerald Candless at all. But then, who was he? And what terrible secret had driven him to live a lie for all those years? ‘So ingeniously constructed, its truth and falsehoods are so deftly and convincingly interwoven, that its solution … is as jolting as a flash of lightning’ Sunday Times
