When Eva is sent to the island of her childhood to photograph the bloody civil war, she faces her hardest assignment yet: her own history.

The traumas of Eva's youth resurface in the decaying house where she grew up. Desperate to escape the memories, she seeks comfort with her lover, Navahiru. But just as she seems about to come to terms with those ghosts from her past, she begins an intense affair with an American colleague, Carl, and again her life tips into chaos. As the terror on the island escalates, she discovers that nothing is as it seems, and when Navahiru is abducted, Eva must face one final, horrifying truth.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Lyrical descriptions of the island's staggering beauty are juxtaposed with an atmosphere of steamy paranoia, sex and violence. Think The Year of Living Dangerously in literary form. -- Laura Tennant * The Fist Post *
Neatly interweaving [the] strands, West navigates currents of sexual obsession and chaos. -- Hephzibah Anderson * Observer *
A gripping murder mystery and love story... Romantic and intense, written with impressive lyricism. * Eve *
