Description

Bill Eidson's first novel is an early and frightening look at the concept of identity theft. When Boston-based dive shop owner, Rod Konrad, runs short of money, he decides to share his apartment. Bette, his girlfriend, isn't ready to move in, so he places an ad for a roommate. Brendan is nice enough—as nice as a stranger invading your home can be. He certainly takes to Rod. But isn't he trying too hard? He talks like Rod, acts like him, and is always just a little too close. Left unchecked, he'll not only steal Rod's clothes—but his life. style="color: rgb(88, 89, 91); font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;" /> style="color: rgb(88, 89, 91); font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;" />THE LITTLE BROTHER is a fast, dark thriller that tackles the very concept of who we are. style="color: rgb(88, 89, 91); font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;" /> style="color: rgb(88, 89, 91); font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;" />"Ever advertised for a roommate, and feared the stranger who is about to share your digs is a psychopath?
