'A modern Graham Greene' - Sunday Times David and Jo Henniger are on their way to a party at their old friends home, deep in the Moroccan desert. But as a groggy David navigates the dark desert roads, two young men spring from the roadside, the car swerves and collides with one of the boys... Meanwhile, festivities at the house are in full flow. Under the watchful eyes of their Moroccan staff, the extravagant hosts attend to the whims of their glittering, insatiable guests as the party rages on into a new day. The stage is set for a weekend in which David and Jo must come to terms with their fateful act and its shattering consequences.

Reviews

"Compelling...Engrossing...Gripping" * Sunday Times * "Surprising and dark and excellent" * New York Times * "A sinister story about guilt, atonement and restitution, fashioned from lean, prowling prose" * Herald * "More than a stylish thriller... The central plot has parallels with The Bonfire of the Vanities, while the socialites could be straight out of The Great Gatsby" * Stylist * "A gripping read" * Kirkus *
