As a psychiatrist Charlie Weir has seen every kind of trauma New York has to offer. Yet he has never managed to overcome the tragic mistake, seven years earlier, that lost him his wife and his daughter, leaving him prone to corrosive loneliness and restless anger. Then into his life walks the alluring Nora Chiara, with her inescapable air of sadness and mystery, and Charlie falls for her quickly, hungrily. But he is increasingly haunted by ghastly half-memories from his childhood and as he retreats further and further into the recesses of his mind the delicate fabric of his life ruptures - with horrifying consequences.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Few writers are capable of taking their readers to such dark places with such evident relish. Among McGrath's greatest skills lies the ease with which he compels us to read on as his tales of madness, murder, abuse and incest unfold ... this masterly specimen of modern gothic delivers the unsettling sting in its tail' Financial Times 'A gripping expose of life on the hinterland of sanity ... McGrath is that rare yet essential thing, a writer who can expose our darkest fears without making us run away from them' New Statesman 'A bolt of queasily inspiring brilliance' Eileen Battersby, Irish Times 'McGrath has the gift, the storyteller's gift, to compel attention, so that you gaze rapt into the fire and listen to the tale unfold' Sunday Times
