In the secluded English countryside a lonely woman’s burning desires balance on a knife-edge as she discovers that her passionate encounter with a mysterious young stranger could thrill her or kill her.
Anne Hudson has a perfect life. Married to a successful neurosurgeon, she lives a life free of responsibilities in a luxurious mansion isolated in the wilderness of the lake country.
Yet despite her privileged lifestyle Anne craves the pleasure of male company, the type of company her husband has failed to give her for years.
And we have some copies of the novel to give away here
Ignored, alone and constantly placed second to the demands of her husband’s prestigious career, Anne sinks into a silent depression and soon begins to lose all sense of the passionate, sensual woman she once was.
Living a life of maddening loneliness, Anne is overcome with the numbness of despair until a chance meeting with an extraordinary man awakens in her the urges of a woman unfulfilled.
Young, vigorous Chris Kennedy unlocks the secret passions in Anne’s mind and fills her with a gratification that twenty years of marriage failed to satisfy. Rejuvenated by the tenderness and youth of her lover, Anne starts to remember the excitement of being alive. But as her infatuation with Chris draws them ever closer, Anne makes a frightening discovery: a missing knife, remarkably similar to the suspected weapon of an unsolved murder.
Addicted to and enraptured by Chris, Anne tries to ignore the chilling suspicions that plague her mind. But when several local women fall prey to a gruesome serial killer, Anne is forced to confront the murderer or risk becoming the next victim.
