About this title


A great city is a mirror reflecting everyone's dreams and desperation. From Arthur Ellis Award winner Nora Kelly comes a powerful suspense story set in London.
Gillian Adams has moved to London to live with policeman Edward Gisborne, her lover of many years. Feeling displaced, she seeks out her old friend Charlotte, once a brilliant television producer. But Charlotte is sunk in despair, and her daughter Olivia, a young actress, is fleeing from a disturbed fan who may be a dangerous stalker. London, on the brink of the new millennium, boils with traffic, money and a record heat wave. After Charlotte is found dead, events gather towards an explosive climax as Olivia confronts her pursuer and the terrible sequel to a hidden past. Complex characters, diamond-sharp prose and a vivid sense of London old and new draw the reader into a novel of suspense in which love, obsession, tragedy and renewal are inextricably linked.
