This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

From the Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Narrow Road to the Deep North, the hypnotic tale of a ghost writer writing the memoir of a notorious con man, and the chilling events that unfold as their lives become increasingly intertwined.

Kif Kehlmann, a young, penniless writer, is rung in the middle of the night by the notorious con man and corporate criminal, Siegfried Heidl. About to go to trial for defrauding the banks of $700 million, Heidl offers Kehlmann the job of ghost-writing his memoir. He has six weeks to write the book, for which he'll be paid $10,000.

But as the writing gets under way, Kehlmann begins to fear that he is being corrupted by Heidl . As the deadline draws closer, he becomes ever more unsure if he is ghost writing a memoir, or if Heidl is rewriting him - his life, his future. Everything that was certain grows uncertain as he begins to wonder: who is Siegfried Heidl - and who is Kif Kehlmann?

As time runs out, as Kehlmann's world feels it is hurtling towards a catharsis, one question looms above all others: what is the truth?

By turns compelling, comic, and chilling, this is a haunting journey into the heart of our age.
