Book Synopsis

Australian poet and academic Rick Harding has a good life, until he discovers someone is stealing his poems and publishing them under another name. Who is Jason Schwartze and why has he selected Rick as his victim? Unable to get anyone to take his distress seriously, Rick determines to track down the plagiarist poet himself. Then someone starts stalking him and his wife Mandy, and things get out of control. Suddenly a happy marriage is plunged into suspicion and paranoia - and who can you trust if not the person you love most?

Clever, witty and challenging, this is a story about the bloodshed that can ensue when literary theory and reality collide.
