Patrick Gale's first novel is suffused with heady wish-fulfilment as two contrasting love stories entwine in the space of one simmering summer week.

WPC Mo Faithe is overcome with lust while investigating a series of violent attacks on newspaper astrologers. Meanwhile in Cornwall, the Peakes are conducting their annual music festival, the cue for their two `children' - Seth, a young violin prodigy, and Venetia, a highly-strung scholar - to embark upon a voyage of self-discovery. As Seth sets out in hot pursuit of unconventional romance on the cliff-tops, the virginal Venetia displays every symptom of an immaculate conception.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`It is packed with arch dialogue, affectionate caricatures and the feigned good humour more commonly found in memoirs written by chauffeurs of the famous.' Observer

`A sad, funny and deeply searching novel. Plotting, characterisation and dialogue quicken the reader's pace, just as the delicacy of the unfolding love stories quickens the heart.' Publishers' Weekly

`A real craftsman, a master storyteller.' Independent on Sunday

`Gale's concoction is irresistible: modern relationships with period charm. I couldn't have liked it more.' Armistead Maupin
