One autumn evening in the city of Cardigan a bicycle goes flying off the end of the pier and its rider disappears, never to be seen again. The key to the mystery is held by Adam Windsong, who possesses the extraordinary ability to breathe underwater.
It is an ability that is to entwine his life - and, briefly, his limbs - with the ambitious and alluring Sally Spector. But while Adam languishes at the enquiries desk of the public library, Sally becomes the most lustrous star in all of Cardigan, and then the central figure in the city's most controversial crime. And therein lies the tale: a delightfully whimsical, uproariously good read.
Whoops - sorry, so far I've not added any other entries about this book to the website (yet).
