Synopsis

The Mistress's Revenge by Tamar Cohen

You think you are rid of me. You think you have drawn a line under the whole affair. You are so, so wrong. For five years, Sally and Clive have been lost in a passionate affair. Now he has dumped her, to devote himself to his wife and family, and Sally is left in freefall. It starts with a casual stroll past his house, and popping into the brasserie where his son works. Then Sally befriends Clive's wife and daughter on Facebook. But that's alright isn't it? I mean they are perfectly normal things to do. Aren't they? Not since Fatal Attraction has the fallout from an illicit affair been exposed in such a sharp, darkly funny and disturbing way. After all, who doesn't know a normal, perfectly sane woman who has gone a little crazy when her heart was broken?

Reviews

This book is Fatal Attraction with a twist and will grip you from beginning to end * Prima * Gasp in recognition at this cracking tale, narrated by a woman scorned... Sister, we've all been there... * Grazia * If you thought Fatal Attraction was the last word on the fury of a woman scorned, think again...acutely observed, wickedly funny and deftly plotted, with a satisfyingly smart twist at the end. * Mail on Sunday * This is a brilliantly chilling read. All about obsession and delusion and the madness that love can induce. It had me up until 3am, gasping to the end -- Jo Whiley Will keep you guessing about its characters fates until the very end * Candis Magazine *
