Book Description

Sept. 23 1998
Two men, driving from opposite directions along a lonely road in France, find themselves forced to exchange cars when a fallen tree blocks their path. What follows from that moment involves a mysteriously ubiquitous tower, a rediscovered masterpiece, and a hair-raising climax at Mont Saint-Michel.

4.0 out of 5 stars neat, quirky little thriller March 19 2001
Format:Hardcover
While driving through Brittany, France, Guy Lantern finds his way blocked by a lightning-struck tree; on the other side is a French art expert in a hurry. They swap cars - Lantern's Mini for the Frenchman's Rolls - and what follows is a sort of homage to Hitchcock movies such as North by Northwest, in which Lantern is drawn into a complex plot, complete with femme fatale and a Proust-quoting baddie. The tale zips along, often amusing, always entertaining, to a very clever finale. Adair is a great observer of people and things, and his eye for detail adds to the at-times almost surreal atmosphere.
