Summary
What matters most: marriage or friendship? fidelity or art? the wishes of the living or the talents of the dead? Matt Holmes finds himself considering these questions sooner than he thinks when his friend, the poet Robert Pope, dies unexpectedly. Rob had invited Matt to become his literary executor at their annual boozy lunch, pointing out that, at 60, he was likely to be around for some time yet. And Matt, having played devotee and apprentice to 'the bow-tie poet' for so long, hadn't the heart (or the gumption) to deny him. Now, after a frosty welcome from his widow, Matt sits at Rob's rosewood desk and ponders his friend's motives. He has never understood Rob's conventional life with Jill, who seems to have no interest in her late husband's work. But he soon finds himself in an ethical minefield, making shocking and scabrous discoveries that overturn everything he thought he knew about his friend. As Jill gets to work in the back garden, Matt is forced to weigh up the merits of art and truth. Should he conceal what he has found or share it? After all, it's not just Rob's reputation that could be transformed forever..
