"Kevin and Gerald were two boys growing up on opposite sides of the Dublin economic divide. Though they had never met, they shared a growing awareness of each other through episodes of mistaken identity. Yet Kevin was doubly haunted, living next door to the one-time residence of Bram Stoker, and the shadow of both a vampire and Gerald stretch far across his early years. For a time, the boys' doppelganger paths would cross innocently enough--one stealing the other's unwitting girlfriend, or being called out to in the street--until a family tragedy sends them both down a much darker path."--P. [4] of cover
