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.

About the Author:

FAY WELDON is an English novelist, playwright, and screenwriter who, at the age of sixteen, lived in a grand London townhouse as the daughter of the housekeeper. In addition to winning a Writers' Guild Award for the pilot of the original "Upstairs Downstairs, " she is a Commander of the British Empire whose books include "Praxis", shortlisted for the Booker Prize for Fiction; "The Heart of the Country, " winner of the Los Angeles Times Fiction Prize; "Worst Fears, " shortlisted for the Whitbread Novel Award; and "Wicked Women, " which won the PEN/Macmillan Silver Pen Award. 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.
