LoveReading View on Caught in the Light

August 2011 Guest Editor Deborah Lawrenson on Robert Goddard...

Caught in the Light  was the first Goddard thriller I read, and I simply couldn’t put it down. As with all of his novels, the tale is compelling, twisty and packed full of historical whimsy that may or may be true. In this one, the origins of photography are the backdrop as a man finds the woman he’s chasing becomes ever more mysterious.

Caught in the Light Synopsis

On assignment in Vienna, photographer Ian Jarrett falls passionately in love with the mysterious and beautiful Marian. Back in the UK, Ian resolves to leave his wife for her - only to find Marian has disappeared, and the photographs of their brief time together have been savagely destroyed. Searching desperately for her, Ian comes across a quiet Dorset churchyard. Here he meets a psychotherapist, who is looking for a missing client of hers: a woman who claims she is the reincarnation of Marian Esguard, who may have invented photography ten years before Fox Talbot. But why is Marian Esguard unknown to history? And who and where is the woman Ian Jarrett has sacrificed everything for?
