About this title

Synopsis:

Liza, a naive 17-year-old, is forced to leave home by her obsessively protective mother, Eve. Their life together is at an end, because Eve is a murderess. This explores the theme of innocence and experience, while retaining the constant tension of violent death. By the author of "Live Flesh".

From the Publisher:

A mother and a daughter live quietly in the rustic gatehouse of Shrove House, an isolated British estate. Their life seems perfectly ordinary except that daughter Liza has been kept isolated from the outside world for all of her sixteen years. And that he has seen her beautiful mother commit murder... more than once. Now, as the police come searching for a missing man, Liza's sheltered, strange world begins to fall apart. Piece by piece she will reveal her mother's tale of betrayal, desire, and obsession. Step-by-step we discover how much like mother, like daughter she is.
