Publisher's Summary

Bristling with intelligence and shimmering with romance, this novel tests the boundary between history and myth.
Patrick Lewis arrives in Toronto in the 1920s and earns his living searching for a vanished millionaire and tunneling beneath Lake Ontario. In the course of his adventures, Patrick's life intersects with those of characters who reappear in Ondaatje's Booker Prize-winning The English Patient.

Superb

the author is at his best in this book. lyrical and tense, this has many of the elements which make his work so durable when thinking back on it. The beginning especially has some of the most beautiful images in literature

Beautiful

Every sentence that Ondaatje writes is exquisitely constructed and makes the love and passion leap out of the book. The narration is very sexy indeed
