Not only does Jude have no memory of Ann but none of his epilepsy either. In fact Jude proves to be a complete contrast to Jack.A new plagiarism unit has opened at the university headed by Dr. Pam Gibbs. As the work of the department begins to bite Pam has an unpleasant experience when her department finds its first genuine plagiarist in Jude. She discovers he has been plagiarising an old lover of hers, Dr John Thoms who disappeared on completing his PhD whilst she was taking her own finals eighteen years before.As the novel progresses we become steeped in the culture of a 2005 university and the intense relationships between the students as they experience their first freedoms to live and discover themselves away from home.The mystery deepens as the plagiarism unit copies more and more historical student material into its database and finds a bizarre repetition of the plagiarism of Dr Thoms on a three year cycle.Jude’s epilepsy is also causing a strange consequence: when he suffers a petit mal it is as if the older, gentler Jack reappears.All the consequences are heightened when Pam begins an illicit affair with the playboy Jude.Throughout the novel the bizarre reappearances of Jack become stronger and more definite which raises new hopes in Ann and drives the novel to its cataclysmic conclusion.
