This well-written story tells of an MP who was exposed (he feels unjustly) in the expenses scandal. He then finds out he is ill with cancer, decides to take a break to write his memoirs and checks into a hotel where he stayed many years ago.
The question is - what exactly is going on in the hotel. Where are the staff, what's happening to his memoirs, what's the problem with his memory and who are the woman and child he keeps on seeing.
I was a little surprised to reach the ending when my Kindle was only reading 70%. However the remainder consists of a few chapters from The Legacy of Hartlepool Hall, the author's next novel due out in 2012.
Overall an excellent story which I very much enjoyed reading.
