A thrilling narrative involving fraud, romantic jealousy and attempted murder. The chilling description of an abortionist with a bizarre clinic is unforgettable. Collins skilfully weaves a complex plot and presents several characters with the same name of Alan Armadale. It is a marvellous and amusing book that is guaranteed to keep you interested till the end.
