Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Elizabeth is a modern woman. Smart. Independent. As sexual as she wants to be–with whomever she wants to be. But a breakup with her academic boyfriend has hit her harder than she cares to admit. And while her latest gig, translating a glitzy Czech thriller into English, offends her literary sensibilities, it arouses others with its steamy scenes of eroticism, violence, submission, and dominance.

Then, when her favorite Van Morrison CD disappears from its rack and her house is inexplicably violated, Elizabeth is afraid she’s starting to lose it–she even consults a local vicar about the possibility of poltergeists.

But what this woman in the lovely Victorian is experiencing is not supernatural. Nor is it madness. For in the dead of night, she will suddenly come face-to-face with her tormentor. She will smell him, she will touch him, and she will make a choice. Then the real haunting will begin.

Synopsis:

“A sinewy and intelligent thriller about the power relations between men and women . . . [Dunant keeps] those pages turning.”
Esquire

“A chilling–sometimes terrifying–and tautly written thriller.”
The Times (London)

“Dunant demands your total attention. . . . [Her skill is] in orchestrating tension, both sexual and psychological.”
Literary Review

“A supercharged, knuckle-in-the-mouth, heart-stopping roller-coaster of a book.”
The Irish Times

“Pulses with emotional truth and heart.”
The Mail on Sunday


From the Trade Paperback edition.
