'As if Donna Tartt, Gillian Flynn and Patricia Highsmith had collaborated in a screenplay to be filmed by Hitchcock - suspenseful and atmospheric' - Joyce Carol Oates

The perfect read for fans of Daphne du Maurier and Patricia Highsmith, set in 1950s Morocco, Tangerine is a gripping psychological literary thriller.

The last person Alice Shipley expected to see since arriving in Tangier with her new husband was Lucy Mason. After the horrific accident at Bennington, the two friends - once inseparable roommates - haven't spoken in over a year. But Lucy is standing there, trying to make things right.

Perhaps Alice should be happy. She has not adjusted to life in Morocco, too afraid to venture out into the bustling medinas and oppressive heat. Lucy, always fearless and independent, helps Alice emerge from her flat and explore the country.

But soon a familiar feeling starts to overtake Alice - she feels controlled and stifled by Lucy at every turn. Then Alice's husband, John, goes missing, and Alice starts to question everything around her: her relationship with her enigmatic friend, her decision to ever come to Tangier, and her very own state of mind.

Tangerine is an extraordinary debut, so tightly wound, so evocative of 1950s Tangier, and so cleverly plotted that it will leave you absolutely breathless.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'An accomplished, ominous, evocative tale of spiralling obsession, skilfully pulled off.' - The Observer

'A cross between The Talented Mr. Ripley and The Girl on the Train' - Daily Telegraph

'Echoes of other writers, most notably Patricia Highsmith, are ever present. It is an indication of Mangan’s talent that she loses only a little in the comparison.' - The Sunday Times

'Atomospheric . . . If The Talented Mr Ripley was recast with female leads and transplanted to Tangier, it might read a lot like Tangerine' - Vogue 

'Riveting . . . unputdownable' - Melissa Katsoulis, The Times

'As if Donna Tartt, Gillian Flynn and Patricia Highsmith had collaborated in a screenplay to be filmed by Hitchcock - suspenseful and atmospheric' - Joyce Carol Oates

'The shade of Patricia Highsmith hangs over this sinister and serpentine thriller that really got me by the throat . . . a riveting tale of obsessive love' - Fanny Blake, Woman & Home

“Twisted tale”

After quite a slow start, the author ratcheted up the tension with enough twists and turns to make me abandon real life and devour the tale in one sitting!

“Psychological novel set in TANGIER of the 1950s”

Tangier: “You cry when you arrive, and you cry when you leave”

The early reviews of this novel indicated that setting was a character in itself. The teaming and oppressive streets of Tangier in 1956 do really come to... More
