Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0805058362, Paperback)If you like the darkly romantic thrillers of Daphne Du Maurier, (Rebecca, The House on the Strand, Jamaica Inn), where secrets from the past surface to tease and torture the protagonists, you should also enjoy Robert Goddard, a best-selling author in his native Britain. Goddard's latest takes the main character of his Into the Blue--idealistic failure Harry Barnett--through a story involving the son he never knew he had, a 33-year-old math genius now in a coma. Harry's stumbling investigations reveal sinister and even surreal overtones to his son's research, and Goddard's silky prose generates an unusual depth of excitement and sympathy. Other Goddard books in paperback include Closed Circle, Hand in Glove, In Pale Battalions, and Painting the Darkness.

When Harry Barnett is anonymously informed that his son is in a coma, he is certain there must be some mistake, since he doesn't have a son. But he soon discovers that he does. Goddard's earlier novel Into the Blue, won the W. H. Smith "Thumping Good Read" Award.
