Publisher's Summary

The message was short: "I want to see you now. I want you to come to me, it doesn't matter how late it is, and tell me exactly what you want from me." Like the world around him, at the dawn of the 21st century, Adam Kellas' life is showing distinct signs of cracking apart.Against his better judgement, Kellas - divorced, unstable, spurned by his lover and by the world of letters - accepts a war assignment from his newspaper. It is the beginning of a journey which takes him from the mountains of Afghanistan to the elegant dinner tables of north London, the marshlands of the American South and, ultimately, to the darkest realms of the human imagination. Only the memory of the beautiful, elusive Astrid, a fellow reporter in Afghanistan, offers him the possibility of hope.

Critic Reviews

"Kellas's unraveling is deliciously enjoyable, and Meek's crafting of character and setting is often masterful. The result is a book that demands much patience from the reader, but delivers rewards in return." (Publishers Weekly)
