And as she insinuates herself into his life, he starts to believe that, for reasons beyond his understanding, his wife has returned to him...

Product Description:

On a blustery April day, the wife of a doctor discovers that her husband has been having an affair. Moments later, driving along a country road, she fails to see sixty-one-year-old Ruth Mitchell up ahead, riding her bicycle. She hits her, killing her instantly, and drives away.

Review:

'Beautifully accomplished' -- Frank Delaney. 'As a study of grief, sacrifice and the struggle for redemption this is an unsettling but absorbing read' --Herald

'Beautifully written and vividly observed ... a compassionate and moving novel' -- Ron Butlin. 'Dazzling ... Richly nuanced and beautifully written' --Seattle Times

'Her latest and perhaps her best ... tears into territory totally unbeholden to genre conventions' -- Boston Globe. 'For her mastery of mood, her complex story lines and her shrewd appreciation of the frail boundaries that divided the sane from the mad, Morag Joss has been compared to ... Ruth Rendell, Barbara Vine, and Minette Walters. Such compliments are tossed about too lightly in the publishing world, but this one is so justified it seems like an understatement' --Washington Post
