Zac is delirious with joy. All his dreams have come true because Henry Mallet - the real, living, breathing, 60 year old Henry Mallet - just knocked on his door. He's not dead. He's been living incognito in Geneva for the last thirty years, eating cheese and breeding schnauzers. Zac may be in seventh heaven, but Suzy is seriously confused. And a little worried - is this the real Henry Mallet, or a fraud? And if this old man is the real Henry Mallet, then who or what is her Henry?
