A Maxim Jakubowski selected title. Once lauded as the prominent exponent of white collar noir, US author Starr now turns his attention with searing effect to domestic unease and attendant thrills. Recently divorced Karen Daily has moved to Westchester, a quiet New York City suburb with her two children and has begun to rebuild her life and teaches at a local school. Her neighbour Mark's marriage, however, is deteriorating and he becomes obsessed with her and his expansive fantasy life now one-sidedly includes her. But Karen soon discovers Mark is not the only one who is taking an undesired interest in her. Stripping away the genteel facade of suburbia until the pace becomes truly frenetic, sordid and dark, this ingenious thriller manipulates the heartstrings like a deranged keyboard. The secret life of middle-class suburbia has never been this disturbing. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
