Mistaken by Neil Jordan
Kevin Thunder grew up with a double – a boy so uncannily like him that they were mistaken for each other at every turn. Though divided, like the city itself, by background and class, the boys exchange identities when it suits them, each acting the part of the other one, but as they reach adulthood, what started as a childhood game descends into something more sinister.
Neil Jordan’s long-awaited novel offers imaginative entertainment of the highest order.
