The book opens with James stalking a blackbird and then killing it. James apparently wants to shock and be hated. He manipulates and steals. But he begins to dream about an earlier James at the house and this forms a developing sequence which finally meshes with the present as he comes to care for, and be involved with, others. The climax of the dream-past and present coming together is very dramatic. A book which will grip those readers who discover it.
