A mesmerizing novel...Stevenson has an incredible talent; she writes like a very old soul, with an exquisitely-tuned sensitivity to sin, guilt and sexual obsession (Jay McInerney)
An exceptionally talented writer (Guardian)
Stevenson captures especially well the thump in the loins and imagination of lust, the excitement of first contact, and agony of sexual withdrawal. It is architecturally expansive, well paced and frequently wise (Literary Review)
Alistair Langford, a high-powered lawyer, has at long last achieved 'almost all' his immense ambitions. But in the course of just one evening, he recklessly destroys it all. The scandal threatens his marriage and his family and even his own identity. Quite suddenly a secret he has kept hidden all his adult life is exposed.
Meanwhile his son Luke is obsessed with a beautiful actress and refuses to believe that love has ended. His ideals in tatters, he seeks a kind of redemption by helping two Kosovan asylum seekers. But illegal night shifts merge uneasily with the parties of the young and wealthy and the collision of the two worlds proves dangerous. Desperate and in the unlikely possession of a gun, Luke is being led down a dark and violent path.
Talitha Stevenson's second novel is a highly suspenseful story about sexual obsession, identity and the dangers of self-deceit. An exploration of the nature of love - in long married couples, the young, parents, between siblings and friends - it is also a morality tale for our times by one of the finest young writers at work today.
