AN INTENSE AND ADDICTIVE NOVEL ABOUT LOST LOVE AND THE COMPULSIVE PULL OF THE PAST
Passionate, tense and menacing, Sally Emerson’s classic tale of obsession in a claustrophobic city is an emotional thriller from start to finish.
Susan Stewart thought her relationship with journalist Phillip Jordan was long over. But when Susan glimpses him again in a bookshop on the outskirts of Washington DC, the memories return. Is Phillip deliberately haunting her? Or are her own distorted memories turning a long, hot, oppressive Washington summer into a nightmare that threatens to unravel her whole life?
This is a gripping story of obsession and love – and the difference between the two – by a formidable novelist. Newly re-issued as part of a series of six titles.
Sally Emerson has been a novelist and journalist for more than thirty years. Her previous books – published by Abacus, Little, Brown and Michael Joseph – include Fire Child, Broken Bodies and Second Sight and she has written for the Guardian, the Sunday Times and the Washington Post.
