The second novel by the author of Clutch of Phantoms, this is another highly intelligent, powerfully paced psychological suspense novel.
Twenty years before the novel starts, a group of male students were appalled to discover that one of them had apparently raped a girl, then hanged himself in remorse. This terrible incident, and their guilt at not having prevented it, hangs over them as they continue their outwardly successful careers.
But in their midst comes a young, ambitious journalist – Ginty Schell – who is researching features on how men today have lost their way. She focuses on this old, once famous story, and becomes the men’s nemesis. In her search she will not only endanger all of them, but dramatically alter her own life.
Like Clutch of Phantoms, Those Whom the Gods Love raises fascinating issues on our attitudes to violence, on the dynamics of group friendship, and on the weight that worship of celebrity can lay on all of us.
