Loretta Lawson, English professor and sometime sleuth, is looking forward to a quiet Christmas, putting the finishing touches on her Edith Wharton biography and spending quality time with her new beau, Robert. And then Sandra calls. A member of Loretta's disbanded women's group, she's in desperate need of a place to stay over the holidays, and what can Loretta do but let her sleep on the foldout couch for a few days.
Unfortunately, a few days turns into a bit more, and Loretta begins to feel persecuted in her own flat. Still, when Sandra vanishes without a word right around New Year's, Loretta grows worried. Making a few calls, tracking down their old group, Loretta finds herself crawling about Sandra's strange private life, uncovering sordid truths that might have something to do with her mysterious and troubling disappearance. . . .

Joan Smith was born in London on 27th August 1953. She is a columnist, novelist and critic. She is the author of Moralities, the highly praised Misogynies and five detective novels, two of which have been filmed by the BBC. She has written columns for The Independent on Sunday and The Guardian and her reviews appear in the Financial Times, The Sunday Times and The Independent. She is a regular contributor to BBC radio. She lives in London.From Publishers Weekly:
Feminist scholar Loretta Lawson learns of a difficult former colleague's death in a car crash and finds some startling evidence after she pursues the case. The "abrupt resolution, poorly prepared as well as unexpected, may disappoint," said PW. "Yet Smith's narrative strengths are also in full evidence: Loretta . . . is literate, credible, likable and excellent company."
