Royle is the author of Counterparts and Saxophone Dreams
Carl, a used record and books store owner, meets Annie Risk but she resists becoming involved. Carl finds a map of an unknown town, the city of his dreams where Annie will agree to see him again.... or the city of his nightmares.
In truth, Carl's journey through madness or fantasy left me as puzzled as Carl as to his past and his future. The writing is excellent. If you like a psychological journey as your fantasy this is the book for you. ~~ Pam Allan
