When a novel by a professor who recently attempted suicide is published, it appears his dimming literary career will rebound. Then questions begin to surface about the child-murder at the center of his masterpiece, and reality and art intertwine as a private detective begins checking out the mystery.

A previous Collins’ novel, Keepers of Truth, was short-listed for the Booker Prize.
