Hal Treherne is a soldier on the brink of a brilliant career. Impatient to see action, his other commitment in life is to his beloved wife, Clara, and when Hal is transferred to Cyprus she and their twin daughters join him. But action changes Hal, and the atrocities he is drawn into take him not only further from Clara but himself, too;
questions that resonate profoundly today.
Sadie Jones lives in London. Her first novel,The Outcast, was published to wide acclaim in 2008- winner of the Costa First Novel Award, it was also shortlisted for the Orange Prize and was a Richard and Judy Summer Reads bestseller.
"Quite an achievement...Jones explores how love may be warped and threatened by politics or polite society but will ultimately endure. She may not have strayed too far from her debut but this follow-up shows that she is no one hit wonder" -- Lucy Atkins Sunday Times "Stylish fiction follow-up to Orange Prize-shortlisted The Outcast" The Sunday Times "This is an unforgiving, far from comfortable read, but a very compelling one" -- Tina Jackson Metro "Sadie Jones pulls no punches in her description of the savagely unsophisticated island war. An exceptional book that shudders with the weight of human responsibility" -- Kerry Fowler Good Housekeeping "Jones writes brilliantly; you quickly inhabit Hal and Clara's world; from the dank, metallic smell of the interrogation room to the taste of White Ladies at the Limassol Club that linger long after you've reached the end" -- Claire Longrigg Psychologies
