Axel Vander, distinguished intellectual and elderly academic, is not the man he seems. When a letter arrives out of the blue, threatening to unveil his secrets and carefully concealed identity, Vander travels to Turin to meet its author. There, muddled by age and alcohol, and always to distinguish fact from fiction, Vander comes face to face with his would-be exposer, a young woman looking to him to unmask him. Cass Cleave. However, her sense of reality is as fragile as his own, and the meeting triggers a series of events, their relationship dark, disturbed and doomed to disaster from its very start.

The Bookworms Mission:

We strive to reduce unnecessary landfill by taking used books, second-hand books, paperback books, hardback books, pre-loved books, great reads and recycled books and then redistributing them throughout New Zealand, Australia and the rest of the world. Readers can connect online with book titles, helping them find new homes, and support reusing and re-loving books that are affordable. At Bookworms you’ll find cheap books, hidden gems and even some lost treasures. We have a passion for sustainability, being eco-friendly, eco-conscious and we aim to incorporate that into all that we do.
