Barbara Vine’s The Chimney Sweeper’s Boy is one of the finest, most accomplished and chilling tales of psychological suspense ever written. When a sudden heart attack kills author Gerald Candless, his adoring daughter Sarah embarks on a memoir of her beloved father. But Sarah’s investigations turn up someone very different from the man she had known – proof that he wasn’t Gerald Candless at all. The Chimney Sweeper’s Boy is a troubling tale of taboo, family guilt and personal identity.
