Secker & Warburg, 1982, Hardcover (Original Cloth), Book Condition: Very Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good, First Edition
In the twilight of his life, A. J. Monaghan, a once-famous author, is disturbed by a familiar but disembodied voice, and by a mystifying query from an American legal firm. His natural response is to turn to his younger friend Patrick Mallow, himself a lawyer. Mallow, a specialist in divorce, is expert in disentangling other people's marital problems, but incapable of identifying his own. When his daughter Sarah runs away from home, it is the remorseless probing of a suspicious policeman that forces him to confront his identity. Size: Octavo (standard book size).
