Adrift in Cambodia, Robert Grieve ? pushing thirty and eager to side-step a life of quiet desperation as a small-town teacher ? decides to go missing. As he crosses the border from Thailand, he tests the threshold of a new future.
And on that first night, a small windfall precipitates a chain of events involving a bag of ?jinxed? money, a suave American, a corrupt policeman and a rich doctor?s daughter, in which Robert?s life is changed forever.
Alive with malice and grace, this is a taut tale reminiscent of the nightmares of Patricia Highsmith: a story of double identities, and innocence in the midst of evil, from a master of atmosphere and observation.
