'Smart, surprising and stealthily unsettling.' The Times
When a young writer dies before completing his first novel, his teacher, Jake, (himself a failed novelist) helps himself to its plot. The resulting book is a phenomenal success. But what if somebody out there knows?
Somebody does. And if Jake can't figure out who he's dealing with, he risks something far worse than the loss of his career.
