'This is contemporary crime writing at its absolute peak' Val McDermid
Something else had happened...Something so terrible that she was too frightened to search her memory for it...The newspapers reported the case with relish. Jane (Jinx) Kingsley, fashion photographer and heiress, tries to kill herself after being unceremoniously jilted by her fiance, who has since disappeared - together with Jinx's best friend Meg Harris...But when Jinx wakes from her coma, she can remember nothing about her alleged suicide attempt. With the help of Dr Alan Protheroe of the Nightingale Clinic, she slowly begins to piece together the fragments of the last few weeks. Then the memories begin to surface...memories of utter desperation and absolute terror. 'Violence may well be offered to anyone who tries to part you from this marvellous, dramatically intelligent novel. It shimmers with suspense, ambiguity and a deep, unholy joy' - Frances Fyfield, "Daily Mail". 'Guaranteed to burn the midnight oil' - Mike Ripley, "Daily Telegraph".See all Product description

Throughout the book you are never quite sure whether the main character, Jinx, or her father is responsible for the murder(s) and, as Jinx is questioned more deeply by her Dr and the Police, her evasiveness and manipulation just make them suspect her more. Is she a murderess covering her trail or is she a fragile woman who, having watched her brutalised husband die years before, is now wary of being found guilty by way of coincidence.
I didn't guess the perp - in fact I changed my mind a couple of times as to who it may have been. Worth a read.
