Polygon, 1996 - English fiction - 154 pages
When Leonard Balmain is asked to 'ghost' the autobiography of the mysterious Torquil Tod, he finds himself drawn into an unwanted complicity with the dark revelations unfolding within the story. When Tod's tale turns to murder and sexual betrayal, Leonard realises he now knows too much and is in danger of ending up on the very pages of Tod's turbulent history. A subtle and controlled tale of doubles and confused identities, this latest offering confirms Herdman's reputation as a worthy successor to James Hogg and R. L. Stevenson.
