A 17-year-old is sent to the country to live with his much-older half-brother and falls into an unexpected affair in this novel by Man Booker Prize-winning author David Storey. The narrator of Storey's 11th novel is an angst-ridden 17-year-old who shares intimate details of his life in the form of memos written to himself. Born in Beverly Hills, California, Richard "Rick" Audlin now lives with his film producer half-brother, Gerry -- who is 35-years his senior -- in a rambling old Victorian house in Hampstead. Gerry's 2nd wife, Martha, is a former film star who has been committed to a mental institution. When Gerry has to go abroad on business, he trundles Rick off to the home of his long-estranged sibling, James (Rick's other half-brother), who lives on the outskirts of a remote village and is the author of 7 unpublished crime novels. It is James's wife, Clare, who meets Rick at the station. Flirty and attractive, she soon draws Rick into an illicit liaison. But Rick senses that something else is going on, something that will eventually lead him to a shattering secret in his family . . . and the thin ice they're all skating on.
