9780099476573: Grievous Angel

When Justine Fraser found herself on an exchange programme in America, she had no idea that the quirky Nicky Bennet - a brief, steamy fling - would, years later, turn out to be one of Hollywood's biggest heart-throbs. Sexy, moody, outrageous Nicky is to die for, and when he goes missing, his enigmatic suicide note spins the media into a frenzy. When Justine sees the note in the paper, she immediately knows that it is the one clue to solving the mystery of his sudden disappearance. Slowly piecing together the fragments of Nicky's life, she sets out on a road that can only lead to betrayal, violence and revenge, discovering that the man she is looking for might turn out to be an entirely different person from the one she fell in love with...

About the Author:

Jane Hill works as the Director of Programming for a group of award-winning radio stations in the North of England. She is also the author of Grievous Angel and The Murder Ballad and lives in Lincoln.

From Publishers Weekly:

Hill's stretch of a first novel rests on a flimsy premise: a 39-year-old British woman can't move on from her college flame, a magnetic American who became a Hollywood star after they painfully parted ways. Justine Fraser, an assistant bookstore manager who lives on the south coast of England, holds amorous suitors and ex-boyfriends at arm's length while she obsesses over her long ago ex, Nicky Bennet, "the love of my life and the great lost opportunity." Their passionate affair (which ended 18 years earlier) climaxed with a marriage proposal but ended abruptly after Nicky accidentally broke Justine's wrist during rough sex and then left her for good, never to contact her again. Now, the papers report that he's walked out on a movie in mid-production and gone missing. The cryptic letter he left behind bears all the earmarks of a suicide note, but Justine picks up on clues that lead her to believe the message is specifically intended for her. So, after unintentionally providing tabloid fodder for the missing Nicky Bennet story, she hops a plane for the U.S. to embark on a misbegotten search for her former lover. By the end of this repetitive, improbable novel, Justine discovers more than she bargained for.
