Nine year old Conor comes to James as an autistic child in need of help. James, a psychiatrist, starts with play therapy and discovers that Conor is not autistic but is very, very troubled and emotionally disturbed. Little by little Conor who feels very safe in James' play therapy room starts to communicate. He sees ghosts and is haunted by them.

James decides to involve the whole family and starts to hear Laura's, Conor's mother, story. Laura is a famous writer. She weaves a story about her life from her childhood on. It involves a whole fantasy world revolving around Torgon. The story is an elaborate fantasy with well developed characters and plot. James must decipher what is real and what is not.

I found the book totally predictable. Torgon's story was a bit tedious and I would have preferred more of Conor's story and less of the fantasy. Even the little twist at the end was 'telegraphed'. I did enjoy the book but this is not up to the standards of Hayden's non-fiction.
