Someone has stolen the only person John Smith has ever loved - his twin brother Cannon. Johnny will stop at nothing to get him back but Cannon doesn't feel the same way any more. He's married now, and he loves his wife. In a desperate effort to avoid Johnny's destructive brotherly affections, Cannon enlists the aid of Sarah Fortune, a lawyer who has turned helping the needy and eccentric into something of an art form. Sarah hides Cannon's wife for him, but she cannot quite trust Cannon's judgement. Is Johnny really intent on inflicting unendurable pain on the woman who has hi-jacked his brother's affections?

UK Kirkus Review »
It has taken Fyfield some time to challenge the pole positions of Rendell and James, but each new book confirms her authority as a first-rate crime writer. She is always good at the terrifying internecine warfare of family life, and demonstrates a scarifying grasp of twisted personalities. The troubled John is set on the rack when his twin brother, Cannon, marries a woman with whom he is deeply in love. Perceiving John's pathological desire to restore their relationship, Cannon (a sometime bombmaker and artist) goes into hiding. Quirky lawyer Sarah becomes involved with him and his wife, the disturbed brother's real target. But is all as it seems? While delivering a powerful narrative of off-kilter psychology, Fyfield's real interest is the nature of evil. (Kirkus UK)
