       Additional Information  
     
      A London writer grows increasingly obsessed with the Ewyas Valley on the border between England and Wales. He's commissioned to write about 19th-century writer Walter Savage Landor's disastrous attempt to create an estate around the medieval Welsh Llanthony Abbey. But he's sidetracked by more recent conspiracies: a bizarre series of suicides in the secret defense industries and witnesses who claim to have uncovered the truth about the decades-old Jeremy Thorpe murder case. A burned-out media bum called Kaporal, employed to research these events, sends the narrator taped reports from his meanderings. The tapes seem like messages thrown over the side by a lost and fraudulent round-the-world sailor. The question is whether the tapes are evidence or deranged fictions.
