Arthur Pfefferkorn is a has-been, or perhaps a never-was: a middle-aged college professor with long-dead literary aspirations. When his oldest friend, bestselling thriller writer William de Vallèe, is lost at sea, Pfefferkorn is torn between envy and grief, for de Vallèe not only outshone Pfefferkorn professionally, but married the woman Pfefferkorn loved.Pfefferkorn’s decision to reconnect with de Vallèe’s widow sets in motion a surreal chain of events, plunging him into a shadowy realm of double crosses and intrigue, a world where no one can be trusted--and nothing can be taken seriously.

Very disappointed. I tried to give it a chance and pushed myself to listen about half way through. The story did not get better and I stopped listening.

I am a huge fan of Jesse Kellerman, I have loved every single one of his books I have ever read/listened to. He only has a few books out, so when I saw he had a new one I got really excited! It was HORRIBLE!! I was so disappointed! I didn't even finish it... I kept thinking that it was going to get better, so I kept listening... about 3/4 way through it had only gotten worse so I stopped at that point. All of his books are a little out there, which is usually what makes them so good, but this one was just weird... not to mention, really boring.
