The Visitor, Paperback Book


Satan, in the form of a bewildered and naked Old Man, arrives in Brighton one dark and snowy December morning.

That night a gull kills itself trying to get at Lucy Cuthman, a charity worker in her early 30s, through her bedroom window.

A thick fog descends over the city - and lingers. The Old Man is twice attacked on the streets, before finding the squat where Geoffrey Cantor, our cultured and Byron-quoting narrator, lives.

The Old Man discovers he has a mesmeric singing voice, and starts to busk around Brighton.

He attracts the attention of Lucy, who is so diabolically enchanted that she can only see him as a beautiful young boy in need of help.

In this guise, the Old Man visits her at work one evening - and promptly disappears.

Hopelessly beguiled, Lucy searches everywhere for him.

Meanwhile, mysterious bundles of money start turning up at her charity...
