Format: Paperback
Dr Edward Haggard is a country doctor in England just before the beginning of World War II. He has a practice on the south coast and one day James Vaughan pays him a visit. He is the sun of the most fascinating woman Dr Haggard ever knew. And so the memories of a passionate love affair are resurrected and the reader slowly discovers why Dr Haggard is practicing general medicine in a small forgotten sea resort, now a shattered and broken man in body and spirit.

The novel catches the feel of England in the 1930s; the barely suppressed terror in the face of approaching war. It is also the story of a relationship which goes wrong, a beautiful story impressively told with a restraint which gives the description of the love affair an epic quality. A splendid novel in the same vein as Graham Greene's The End of the Affair.

Format: Paperback
Well-written Gothic style, and downright erotic at times, I highly recommend this book. The characters, Dr. Haggard, Fanny, James and Ratcliff, will stay with you when the book is finished.

Format: Paperback
This book is a successful heir to the kind of mad narratives written by Poe. Don't read the back jacket; just jump into it. Through McGrath's narrator, the author offers some real insights into just how distorted passion can be. And don't forget to laugh. It IS supposed to be funny, too.
