Publisher's Summary

Kit Philipson has always felt like something of a stranger in his family. Growing up as an only child in Glasgow, he had every advantage. His mother was a teacher; his father, a journalist, escaped from Nazi Germany on one of the Kinder transports. But on her deathbed, Kit’s mother tells him he was adopted and his birth name was Novello.
Soon, vague memories of his early life begin to surface, some good some bad. A search of old newspaper files reveals that a three-year-old boy named Peter Novello was abducted from his parents’ holiday hotel in Sicily in 1989. Now the young man who has known himself only as Kit sets out to rediscover his past.
