By Sally Emerson
Category Literary and Contemporary Fiction, Romantic Fiction, Thriller
An intense and addictive novel about lost love and the compulsive pull of the past. Passionate, tense and menacing, Sally Emerson’s classic tale of obsession in a claustrophobic city is an emotional thriller from start to finish. Susan Stewart thought her relationship with journalist Phillip Jordan was long over. But when she glimpses him again in a bookshop on the outskirts of Washington DC, the memories return. Is Phillip deliberately haunting her, or are her own disturbed emotions turning a long, hot, oppressive Washington
summer into a nightmare that threatens to unravel her whole life? This is a gripping story of obsession and love – and the difference between the two – by a formidable novelist. Newly re-issued as part of a series of six titles.
