Overview: What’s a wife, husband or partner like when you’re not watching?
Investigating Mr Wakefield explores the dangers waiting to ensnare those who try to find out.
In tight, breathtaking writing – almost claustrophobic at times – Investigating Mr Wakefield brilliantly explores how surveillance can only too quickly become its own addiction, as Jack becomes overwhelmed by an imagination gone bad.
Jack Connolly was a high flying war photographer. His career went into freefall when he manipulated the image of a dead soldier to make it appear that the soldier died a hero’s death. At the time, Jack saw it as an act of simple humanity, but the innocent deception cost him his job and the trust of his peers. It taught Jack the all-important lesson; only one thing matters and that’s the truth. So when Jack begins to suspect his partner might be leading a double life, he plunges into a search for the truth behind her actions. Jack believes he’s shining a light on all that might be hidden. In fact he’s journeying into the very heart of darkness.
