Into the lives of four female friends erupts Leslie Beck, an old flame not quite extinguished, who catapaults them into their murky past. Leslie is still a man with a life force - a force which he is more than willing to share with old and new friends, provided of course that they are women.

She lives in England.From AudioFile:
Leslie Beck is a life force to be reckoned with. He's dealt happiness and pain to four women and held emotional sway over them. No matter that they go on with their lives; Leslie the Lucky still has the power to taunt or daunt. The challenge for Jacqueline King is to narrate a story told by many different characters, and she performs faultlessly. Each woman has her own eccentricity of speech, whether it be accent or timbre. This makes the novel easier to listen to than to read. King's reading is very intimate and is best heard on a headset because one needs to keep one's hand on the volume to catch all the delicacy.
