Alistair Langford, a high-powered lawyer, has at long last achieved 'almost all' his immense ambitions. But in the course of just one evening, he recklessly destroys it all. The scandal threatens his marriage and his family and even his own identity. Quite suddenly a secret he has kept hidden all his adult life is exposed. Meanwhile his son Luke is obsessed with a beautiful actress and refuses to believe that love has ended. His ideals in tatters, he seeks a kind of redemption by helping two Kosovan asylum seekers. But illegal night shifts merge uneasily with the parties of the young and wealthy and the collision of the two worlds proves dangerous. Desperate and in the unlikely possession of a gun, Luke is being led down a dark and violent path. Talitha Stevenson's second novel is a highly suspenseful story about sexual obsession, identity and the dangers of self-deceit. An exploration of the nature of love - in long married couples, the young, parents, between siblings and friends - it is also a morality tale for our times by one of the finest young writers at work today.
