Half Moon Street, the first of these two short novels, stars Dr. Lauren Slaughter, a young, brilliant, beautiful American in London who signs up with an "escort service" to prove to an ugly man she barely knows that she will "do just about anything." The second novel, Buried Alive, is set in Boston and tells of middle-aged twin brothers: after a long separation they meet, George suddenly dies and Gerald assumes his identity as a doctorwith unforeseen complications.
