About this title


"Truly mesmerizing."
New England, 1887. The millionaire William Knight is brutally murdered and the only witness is his grandchild, Richard, who himself disappears, and is presumed dead. Eighteen years later, Richard is "recognized" in Switzerland in the person of Alexander von Reisden, and William Knight's only son, Gilbert, is convinced that this man is the long lost child. Reisden, himself, has no memory of any childhood, and his own growing obsession with finding the real Richard is leading him closer to a shattering thruth. And to a killer, still at large....
"A most satisfying tale."

From the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher:

Set in turn-of-the century Boston society, a compelling, gothic tale of a two men attempting to solve a 20-year-old murder. This is a New York Times notable book - and rightly so. Enigmatic and entertaining. The sequel, THE KNOWLEDGE OF WATER, is set in Paris and centers around strange doings in the art world; this book is also a New York Times Notable book.
