Passionate, tense and menacing, Sally Emerson’s classic tale of obsession in a claustrophobic city is an emotional thriller from start to finish. Susan Stewart thought her relationship with journalist Phillip Jordan was long over. But when Susan glimpses him again in a bookshop on the outskirts of Washington DC, the memories return. Is Phillip deliberately haunting her? Or are her own distorted memories turning a long, hot, oppressive Washington summer into a nightmare that threatens to unravel her whole life?
This is a gripping story of obsession and love – and the difference between the two – by a formidable novelist. Newly re-issued as part of a series of six titles.
