Summary

It's 1946 and 17 year old Laura Trelling is stagnating in her dilapidated Sussex family home. Then she meets Paul Lovell - a chance encounter that will bring her a new life in pre-apartheid South Africa.

Three years earlier, 16 year old Gay Gibson is no less desperate to escape England. Gay's heart is set on stardom - but first she must find a way out of Birkenhead.

When their paths cross, they find their lives inextricably entangled, with fatal consequences...

Critic reviews

"Based on the infamous "porthole murder" trial of 1948, this is an exceptionally well-writen, suspenseful novel." (The Guardian)
