Review: THE TRAVELING COMPANION by Ian Rankin
(A Bibliophile Mystery)
An exciting novella illustrating art' s imitation of life, and the weight of the past extending into the present, THE TRAVELING COMPANION relates the story of a young man, newly graduated from the University of Edinburgh, who spends a summer in Paris before returning to commence his Ph.D. work on the author Robert Louis Stevenson. Working at a bookshop, a collector informs him of an existent manuscript of THE TRAVELING COMPANION, a lost Stevenson work. As the narrator's experiences expand, so does his latent psyche, with electrifying and disastrous consequences.
