When Nina meets the handsome Rupert during a conference, it leads to the kind of empty adulterous encounter that she'd rather forget. But Rupert doesn't feel the same way, and when he starts to turn up everywhere, her carefully constructed life begins to fall apart. He won't let her out of his sight: is it pure infatuation, or something more sinister? Who is Rupert, and what is the power he holds over her? And who is Nina Todd?

"Glaister is excellent on relationship dynamics and the hot, oppressive atmosphere of her modern-day fairytale almost causes steam to rise from the pages." (Independent on Sunday)
The idea behind this story was great and it started pretty well. Unfortunately it went downhill fast. The characters were unbelievable, all over the place, confused and implausible. They did things that real people just don't do. Know anyone who eats someone's ashes? Me neither! The readers didn't help either - they put no emotion into their voices and didn't help the characters at all.
I stuck with it hoping it would redeem itself but.....no.
I wasn't going to write a reveiw as Mum always said 'if you don't have something nice to say..' but I just had to. If I save one person from this book it will be worth her wrath!
