Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A flamboyant beauty who once partied with the Prince of Wales and who now, in her seventh decade, has ìgone nativeî in a Ceylonese jungle. A proud and ambitious lawyer who unwittingly seals his own fate when he dares to solve the sensational Hamilton murder case that has rocked the upper echelons of local society. A young woman who retreats from her family and the world after her infant son is found suffocated in his crib. These are among the linked lives compellingly revealed in a novel everywhere praised for its dazzling grace and savage wit — a spellbinding tale of family and duty, of legacy and identity, a novel that brilliantly probes the ultimate mystery of what makes us who we are.

Synopsis:

- A booksellers' favorite! THE HAMILTON CASE was a Barnes and Noble "Discover Great New Writers" selection, a Borders "Original Voices" selection, and a Book Sense pick for June 2004.- Great for reading groups--one of those rare novels that elicits gasps of recognition and delight on virtually every page.- Winner of the Commonwealth Writer's Prize for Best Book, SE Asia and South Pacific region, and of the Encore Award, sponsored by the Society of Authors (UK), for the best published second novel of the year.
