Elizabeth is a modern woman. Smart. Independent. As sexual as she wants to be–with whomever she wants to be. But a breakup with her academic boyfriend has hit her harder than she cares to admit. And while her latest gig, translating a glitzy Czech thriller into English, offends her literary sensibilities, it arouses others with its steamy scenes of eroticism, violence, submission, and dominance.
Then, when her favorite Van Morrison CD disappears from its rack and her house is inexplicably violated, Elizabeth is afraid she’s starting to lose it–she even consults a local vicar about the possibility of poltergeists.
But what this woman in the lovely Victorian is experiencing is not supernatural. Nor is it madness. For in the dead of night, she will suddenly come face-to-face with her tormentor. She will smell him, she will touch him, and she will make a choice. Then the real haunting will begin.

Sarah Dunant, a television host in London, begins and ends her poignant and powerful Transgressions with music by Van Morrison. When Lizzie Skvorecky can't find her favorite Morrison compact disc, Enlightenment, she thinks it might have something to do with the breakup of her last romance. Lizzie, the British daughter of Czech immigrants, is a translator, and her latest job is a tough Czech crime novel involving torture and rape. At first she writes off the weird things happening around her to either her ex-lover or the influence of her work. But soon Lizzie realizes she's in serious trouble, stalked by a vicious rapist, and not even the police can protect her. So she takes things into her own hands. By the time the book ends with Morrison singing "The Healing Has Begun," you'll know you've been on a rough and memorable trip.About the Author:
