This third vel from Paul Frisby once again demonstrates the author's ability to take the reader on a journey through the everyday scenery of the Australian social landscape. If your life has taken a turn for the worse you would naturally grab an opportunity that comes along to change places with someone else, wouldn't you? If you are James Macdonald, a former middle manager from a finance company, you find yourself out of jail and quite well off. But you also find that the identity you have stolen t only doesn't really exist but is also under the control of unidentified forces. With choice but to ride out the exigencies of the life of your adopted persona you try to keep out of sight, but always with the feeling that someone is looking over your shoulder. And when you confide in your sister it only makes things worse ...for both of you!
