Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What if — by a stroke of fortune — one could start afresh and wipe away that catastrophic blunder of the past? When Hazel loses three years of her past after a traffic accident wipes out her memory, she doesn't remember her quarrel with Jonathan — or that she left him and moved out of their house. All she knows is that he has dropped everything to care for her and professes to adore her. While he begins to rewrite their history, two other misfits — an American sojourner and a luckless English actress — knock about London, each of them haunted by indelible memories they long to forget.

The Missing World weaves together these separate quests for love and truth in a manner both thrilling and revealing.

Review:

"Delicate and terrifying...a modern-day Rebecca." The Boston Globe

Review:

"Darkly humorous...A Shakespearean comedy with Murdochian overtones." New Yorker

Review:

"A page-turner: suspenseful, crisp, beautifully crafted...[from] a riveting storyteller as masterful as Patricia Highsmith or Ruth Rendell." San Diego Union-Tribune
