A great city is a mirror reflecting everyone's dreams and desperation. From Arthur Ellis Award winner Nora Kelly comes a powerful suspense story set in London.
Gillian Adams has moved to London to live with policeman Edward Gisborne, her lover of many years. Feeling displaced, she seeks out her old friend Charlotte, once a brilliant television producer. But Charlotte is sunk in despair, and her daughter Olivia, a young actress, is fleeing from a disturbed fan who may be a dangerous stalker. London, on the brink of the new millennium, boils with traffic, money and a record heat wave. After Charlotte is found dead, events gather towards an explosive climax as Olivia confronts her pursuer and the terrible sequel to a hidden past. Complex characters, diamond-sharp prose and a vivid sense of London old and new draw the reader into a novel of suspense in which love, obsession, tragedy and renewal are inextricably linked.

This is the most recent in a series of books featuring Gillian Adams (canadian university professor) and her distant partner Edward (london based senior police officier). The series has jumped from London, to Cambridge, to eastern U.S. after starting in Vancouver. I enjoy the relationship and the mysteries and the settings. The characters of the victims and suspects are well developed. The plots are believable enough. Although the deaths are grim, there is relatively little violence in the series. The unravelling of the mystery usually involves links and past histories that gradually emerge.
