"a superbly written, intriguing character study"

 Told as a time-slip – the roots of the alienation date back to 1997, when teenage Louise witnesses the 2.30am arrival of Lane’s local politician lover, blood-covered teenage son in tow – this is a superbly written, intriguing character study of how the past impacts on the present.
