The novel opens in Tangier 1956 where we are transported to the most glamorous possible milieu, an ideal setting for a story of heated passion in which friendship becomes obsession and finally a kind of madness. The last person Alice Shipley expected to see when she arrived there with her new husband was Lucy Mason. After the horrific accident at Bennington, the two friends who were once inseparable roommates haven't spoken in over a year, but Lucy is standing there, trying to make things right. Perhaps Alice should be happy. She had not adjusted to life in Morocco, too afraid to venture out into the bustling medinas and oppressive heat. Lucy, always fearless and independent, helps Alice emerge from her flat and explore the country, but soon a familiar feeling starts to overtake Alice - she feels controlled and stifled by Lucy at every turn. Then her husband John goes missing, and Alice starts to question everything around her - her relationship with her enigmatic friend, her decision to come to Tangier, and her very own state of mind. Eerie and thrilling, the tangled knot that binds these two female characters is set against a dark back story. A literary tour, beautifully written. 388pp.
