FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF REBECCA

'What a magnificent thriller this is' NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

'She wrote exciting plots . . . a writer of fearless originality' GUARDIAN

'A good original novel, well tinged with nightmare' TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

'He turned and stared at me and I at him, and I realised, with a strange sense of shock and fear and nausea all combined, that his face and voice were known to me too well. I was looking at myself.'

By chance, two men - one English, the other French - meet in a provincial railway station. Their resemblance is uncanny, and they spend the evening talking and drinking. It is not until John wakes the next morning that he realises his French companion has stolen his identity and disappeared. So John steps into the Frenchman's shoes, and faces a variety of perplexing roles - as owner of a chateau, director of a failing business, head of a fractious family, and master of nothing.

MEDIA REVIEWS

She wrote exciting plots, she was highly skilled at arousing suspense, and she was, too, a writer of fearless originality - Guardian

A good original novel, well tinged with nightmare - Times Literary Supplement

What a magnificent thriller this is - New York Times Book Review

No other popular writer has so triumphantly defied classification . . . She satisfied all the questionable criteria of popular fiction, and yet satisfied the exacting requirements of "real literature", something very few novelists ever do
