London: Allison & Busby, (2005) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - A very different mystery thriller by this prolific and award-winning offer. "It offers characters with more emotional depth than those who typically populate his cutting satires. While in Colchester for a reunion, Graham Broadbent, an acclaimed novelist, is jolted out of his complacency by the appearance at his hotel of an attractive young woman claiming to be his daughter. Her assertion leads the aloof Broadbent to revisit a long-past romantic relationship with Peggy Somers, an unrepentant manipulator and fantasist, who may actually be the mother of a son whose existence he never knew of."
