About the Book

Leo Morgan, an isolated writer, is found dead by his alienated son James and daughter Sylvia. His apartment has been ransacked by an intruder and his hundreds of books have been strewn about. A manuscript he has been writing about Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855). A writer/philosopher and founder of Existentialism, has been torn to pieces. James. Leo's son, spends many anxious weeks trying to make sense of the ruined manuscript as he tries
to salvage it and mend his relationship with his distant father. As the murder case is investi gated by the police, Detective L.V. Quine is drawn into the lives of the disturbed Morgan family. What he fi nds changes everything he believes, trusts and puts his faith in: his loyalty to family and the law. Sexual passion, exhibited in his love for Sylvia Morgan, becomes his goal and the source of his conflict. In all of this, the life and ideas of Soren Kierkegaard come into play.
