Bobby Berlin needs to find out. Because his father has woken up convinced he’s a teenager by that name. He thinks the year is 1977 and, for reasons he can’t explain, he’s determined to get to Dundee. But their journey to the city turns into a horrific ordeal for Bobby and his best friend Mary.
His father’s behaviour is becoming increasingly sinister and the events unfolding around them are as mystifying as they are horrific. Bobby Berlin has got to get rid of Dodd Pollen.
Before Dodd Pollen gets rid of him.
