Watching them secretly is John Boswell, James' younger brother. He has stalked his older brother for days.

"The Brothers Boswell is such an impressive book, both for its ability to inhabit its source material and for how well it shines on its own merits. Many novels claim to be literary thrillers, but rarely are they quite this literary and quite this thrilling. Philip Baruth has written a remarkable work.'" - David Liss
