Review

This is the most amazing book . . . [Moore's] characters are piercingly real, his scenes supercharged with emotional intensity, lurking evil, and threatened innocence. "Chicago Sun-Times on Brian Moore"

[Moore] is my favorite living novelist. Each new book of his is unpredictable, dangerous, and amusing. He treats the novel as a tamer treats a wild beast. "Graham Greene on Brian Moore"

Of all our present novelists he is for me the one whose books most immediately evoke and touch my private feelings and fears. "Christopher Ricks, New Statesman on Brian Moore""

From the Back Cover

Eileen Hughes is young, hauntingly beautiful and very naïve. Befriended by her wealthy employers, Bernard and Mona McAuley, she leaves Ulster for the first time in her life to spend a holiday with them in London. But all is not well with the McAuleys, and, in her bewildering innocence, Eileen fails to see the perilous vulnerability of her position until it is almost too late…

A psychological masterpiece filled with passion and suspense, 'The Temptation of Eileen Hughes' is a stunning exploration of obsession and morality.

'No other Life, The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne, Black Robe' and many other novels by Brian Moore are available in Flamingo.

'Brian Moore is surely one of the most versatile and compelling novelists writing today.'
DAILY TELEGRAPH

'I cannot think of another living male novelist who writes about women with such sympathy and understanding.'
TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

'The book is on fire, and goes on burning in one's memory.'
NEW YORK TIMES

'Moore is a brilliant storyteller, a novelist of great subtlety and depth.'
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
