An antiques dealer hires Albert Samson to prod a tardy producer about a play he's written. The producer has had it for weeks and now the playwright wants his script back. It's an unlikely project, but Samson hasn't got anything better to do on a snowy December night in Indianapolis.

But 'The Kokomo Case Case' turns out not to exist. Which is only the first in a long chain of ambiguous events. The series of half-truths and whole lies leads to the spectre of a murdered child.

Lewin has brains and style, and that's why the story is such a good one

Lewin writes with style and sensibility and wit. He has a fine poetic sense of detail that lights up every page. He can frighten the reader too
