So, when he starts to have frightening, recurring nightmares, he does his best to ignore them. The images that appear in his dream are disturbing - Mr. F can't for the life of him think where they have come from. After all, he's a perfectly ordinary middle-aged man. As London's crooked backstreets begin to swelter in the long, hot summer of 1967, Mr. F's nightmare becomes an obsession. A chance encounter adds a face to the body that nightly haunts him, and the torments of his sweat-drenched nights lead him - and the reader - deeper into a terrifying labyrinth of rage, desire and shame."@en ;
