About the Book

Thwarted ambition turns to murderous frustration…

Sydney, 1975

Accountant Edward Piper is a discontented man. Plagued by self-doubt and patronised by his activist wife Sibyl, he yearns to follow what he believes to be his true calling — as a film scriptwriter.

So he’s delighted when writer Lindsay Reid shows an interest in his ideas. While Sybil works on her pottery and endeavours to save the world, Edward embarks on his plan to finally make people take him seriously. But humans can’t be moulded as easily as clay — and Lindsay has plans of his own. Plans that don’t include Edward…

When Edward is cruelly betrayed by Lindsay, his hero-worship turns to blind rage. But it’s a shock when the writer is found dead. Surely Edward couldn’t have been responsible – could he?

The trouble is, he can’t remember a thing that happened that night…

As Edward’s grip on reality begins to loosen, he’s soon caught up in a nightmare scenario that far surpasses any screenplay he could have dreamt up…

How can Edward prove his innocence when he can’t remember what happened? And why is Sybil suddenly so distant?

As fact and fiction begin to blur, can Edward even trust his own memory any more?
