Joshua Jones’s life is falling apart: he’s just lost his job, his wife and his flat. But on the precipice of homelessness and defeat, he meets a beguiling stranger... Angela, an impulsive femme fatale, has also reached a low point. Seeking refuge in each other’s arms, they share a moment of reckless tenderness before she steps quite deliberately into the path of an oncoming bus. As Angela lies in a coma, Josh—determined to find out who she really is and to explain her suicidal act—pretends that he is her boyfriend, inextricably binding their fates. But as his obsession grows, so does the danger of his situation. Suspecting he is being followed, and acting ever more erratically, he begins to question his own sanity until the discovery of Angela’s real identity finally reveals a chilling truth... In this sensitively rendered, shockingly unpredictable psychological drama, acclaimed novelist Danny Scheinmann reminds us that before we can connect with others, we must first understand ourselves.
