Description

Stella lives with her cat in a top floor flat, where she waits for her clients to arrive for their massages, and her life is as perfectly ordered as the phials in her treatment room. As strictly inventoried are the contents of her rucksack, always ready by the door in case she needs to make a quick getaway. But she never goes out; she can't. When Ivan moved in he was told: no stories from the past, no unnecessary anecdotes, no questions. But can Stella keep her own rules? Yellow is the colour of gas, of fear, of jealousy. And Stella has smelt something in the air that she cannot control. Janni Visman's second novel is a twisted love story that takes place in a few bare rooms, a superbly taut thriller that confirms the arrival of a fantastic new talent.show more

Review quote

'Intense, disquieting ... Visman drip feeds these telltale titbits with exquisite timing, creating a taut, maze-like narrative that will entrap you within pages' Daily Mail 'Visman's sparse, elegant prose makes for a wonderfully cynical read ... every page is so well written it's tempting to read each again and again' Glamour 'Visman has a clinical eye for unlikely sources of unease, making something as innocuous as a pet cat's preference for a neighbour's bed highly unsettling. Simple but highly effective, Yellow sets the net curtains of one's mind atwitch' The Times 'Spare, claustrophobic ... unputdownable and intelligent ... A thoughtful, unsettling story: if you enjoy the paranoia of Du Maurier's Rebecca or Hitchcock's Vertigo, you will adore this' Inkshow more
