An attractive student. An older professor. Think you know the story? Think again.

4 stars out of 5

"This characteristically clever novel challenges assumptions and has a sophisticated take on sexual politics."

Hunter approaches controversial subjects with relish in her Oxford-based novels. Her latest takes on the low level of prosecutions in sexual assault cases at universities. Female students are usually the complainants and Hunter’s set-up, in which a male student makes an allegation against a female lecturer, makes for an uncomfortable read.
