The Great Gatsby meets The Secret History in this torrid novel of love, lust and deception.

Harry and Madeleine Winslow are blessed with talent, money, and charm. Harry is an award-winning author on the cusp of greatness. Madeleine is a woman of sublime beauty and grace whose elemental goodness belies a privileged upbringing. Bonded by deep devotion, their marriage is both envied and admired by friends who spend summers at their East Hampton idyll.

When a holiday fling turns disastrously wrong, 26-year-old Claire falls into the Winslows' welcoming orbit. They are enchanted by her youth and intelligence. In turn, Claire is entranced by Harry and Maddy. The love that exists between them is something of which, until now, she could only dream.

Seen through the omniscient eyes of Maddy's childhood friend Walter, a narrator akin to Nick Carraway in The Great Gatsby, Indiscretion is a story about the complexities of love, the dangerous nature of desire and how obsession can tear apart even the most perfect of worlds.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`A cautionary tale of desire, deceit and envy that plays out in unashamedly A-list locations, this is the perfect escapist novel' Daily Mail

`This stunning novel is as close to a modern day version of The Great Gatsby as you'll get, while maintaining an originality that makes you want to re-read it instantly' Psychologies

`Every bit as lust-filled, extravagant and disastrous as Gatsby' Stylist

`The scene is set for passion, dissolution and emotional despair ... deliciously heady' Sunday Express

`An epic novel of friendship, betrayal and undying love ... outstanding' Kirkus

`Smart, sensuous and moving' O, The Oprah Magazine

“Unsure”

I struggled to get into this book due to the way the story is told. The story comes from a secondary character in the book which at times left me confused. I would start to forget that they were telling the story at... More

“Superb”

Indiscretion was a compelling read. I enjoyed the story being told by a secondary character which gave it an unusual angle but it really worked. You could tell whose side he was on but you could also tell he cared... More
