Two years ago, he had been a promising young novelist. Now he barely survives in a near derelict cottage with only his own obsessive thoughts for company. Two years of loving Drusilla - the rich, unstable girl with everything she needed, and a husband she wanted dead. The affair was over. But the long slide into violence had just begun....

I had read this years ago but so enjoyed it as a talking book.
I had forgotten large parts of it. I was on tenterhooks not know what had happened to the dog.
It's absolutely brilliant and brings you back to the days before mobile phones and other technology.
highly recommended!

Childhood sweethearts William and Mary have been married for 60 years. William is a celebrated surgeon, Mary a devoted wife. Both have a strong sense of right and wrong. This is what their son, Joe O'Loughlin, has always believed. But when Joe is summoned to the hospital with news that his father has been brutally attacked, his world is turned upside down. Who is the strange woman crying at William's bedside, covered in his blood - a friend, a mistress, a fantasist or a killer?

I’ve loved the other Joe O’Lachlan books but didn’t enjoy this one. It was so far fetched and unbelievable!
Brilliant performance by Sean Barrett as always but not a great story.
