Transgressions by Sarah Dunant
Book DescriptionBefore she wrote historical fiction, Sarah Duant specialized in smart, gripping suspense novels, which won her Britain's prestigious Silver Dagger award. In this disturbing, sometimes brutal thriller, the lines bleed between passion and violence, attraction and repulsion, pleasure and terror. Lizzie Skorvecky lives alone in a sprawling London house. Determined to get on with her life after a nasty breakup with her boyfriend, she accepts an all-consuming job translating a steamy Czech detective novel into English. At first, Lizzie laughingly dismisses the cliches in this hardboiled fantasy world, but then puzzling events begin to occur in her own life that mirror the fictional violence that she encounters every day in her literary world. It soon takes every ounce of Lizzie's strength and cunning to match wits with the forces arrayed against her. Controversial and darkly erotic, Transgressions presents readers with the sort of intense, strong-willed heroine taking charge of her own fate that figured so prominently in the success of Dunant's most recent novel, The Birth of Venus.
