    DescriptionFrom the author of the highly acclaimed "A Child's Book of True Crime," "a brilliant, seductive, and unnerving first novel of sexual betrayal" ("O, The Oprah Magazine"), comes a dazzling, intense, and erotic second novel set in an isolated mansion in the country. Liese Campbell has an engagement for the weekend: to stay with Alexander Colquhoun, the handsome, well-mannered heir of an Australian pastoral dynasty, at his country seat some hours from Melbourne. Liese is English. She's come to Australia to work at her uncle's real-estate business and pay off her debts. Alexander has been looking for a place in the city. The luxury apartments Liese shows him have become sets for a relationship that satisfies their fantasies--and her financial problems. Both players understand the rules. Or so she thinks. Across the ancient landscape they drive at dusk to his grand decaying mansion. Here Liese senses a change in Alexander and realizes that a different game has begun. Chloe Hooper's riveting and provocative new novel is a psychological thriller for the modern age, an exploration of the snares of money and love and the dark side of erotic imagination. A trap has been set, but how and why? And for whom?

    Review quote
    "This beautifully crafted psychological thriller really got under my skin...Hooper's achievement is to make us frightened for" Liese and, increasingly, frightened of" her, too."--A.N. Wilson "Reader s Digest (U.K.) ""
