Graham Wilde is a bombastic host of the talk radio program Wilde Card, provoking many a heated call with his eccentric and often irrational audience. He invites Frank Jasper, a purported psychic, to come on the program. He firmly believes that the man is a charlatan, albeit a talented one, and draws upon personal knowledge about the man to embarrass him on air, using patter similar to that which Jasper utilizes in his act. When Jasper is hired by the family of a missing adolescent girl to help them find her, Wilde is horrified when Jasper seems to suggest that Wilde might be behind the girl's disappearance. An "exploration of the twists and turns of reality-media personalities, the line between the dead and the living, and how facts can be twisted to serve all manner of 'truths'"--Dust jacket flap.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Two type-A personalities drive this story that at first seems like a psychological thriller. Soon you realize that Frank and Graham are headed for a seething, almost supernatural battle of mental fortitude...with fangs.
